On Friday, January 29th, during the ongoing L@TE series, the
Berkeley Art Museum unveiled BAMscape, an amazing
architectural sculpture designed by architect Thom Faulders, that was commissioned by the Museum.

Designed to be people friendly, it was built to be interactive for people to climb, walk, sit & lay on.

The children especially enjoyed romping around on it.

Constructed of wood over foam, it is painted a wonderful, warm orange. Delightful to the eye and easy on the body when laying on it, it is a beautiful, colorful & huge construction that says, “Come, enjoy me.” It is a visual blend reminiscent of a stage set, waves, architectural plans, mountains or a children’s slide. Faulders says it creates, “dynamic relationships between users and environments.”
