The giant robot is a friendly monster from a fairy tale, an artificial cliff landscape. The wavy, soft surface can be a playground or a comfortable place to sit or lie on the beach. The structure consists of simple or double layered hexagon grids. The quality of the hexagon grid surfaces and their distances can be changed through radial and linear telescopic systems.

My goal was to achieve the toy like aesthetics of the 1st ave machine flowers. I was aiming for an element of surprise and unpredictability similar to that of the machine flowers with the conversion of the landscape into the stage.
