FISHING HOLE

Fishing Hole is a pavilion located on the southern outskirts of the Port of Aarhus in Denmark. It was conceived as a shipwrecked sailboat - utilizing the structural principle of tensegrity while celebrating the seafaring spirit of its environment. Mast-like rods are suspended in air through a continuous net of tensioned cables (tensegrity). Sail cloth is then stretched between the masts, causing the tensegrity structure to billow in the wind. The dock structure within is kept separate from the billowing sails, ensuring that visitors can remain safe while experiencing this effect.
