For participation in a project undertaken by Headlands Center for the Arts
Floating above Brookfield Places' Winter Garden, The Roof is a site-specific suspended sculpture by Thai artist, Pinaree Sanpitak that celebrates collaboration and coexistence. The Roof is composed of translucent canopies hanging among the Winter Garden palm trees that create a literal but temporary ‘roof.’ Made from raw silk, glass fiber, non-woven fabric, wires, hooks, chains and aluminum modular truss, The Roof was constructed to interact with the architecture of Brookfield Place — as well as the palms and the people who pass through each day, forming a delicate, surreal shelter within the walls of the Winter Garden.
Pinaree Sanpitak,from Thailand, was in a residency at Headlands Center for the Arts in 2000 with support from ACC.
