"Sunwheel" was a celebratory piece of what we could call "interactive architectural urban scenography" in honor of Porto's popular patron saint. Commissioned by Porto Lazer it is a contemporary take on the traditional "cascata de S. João", which allowed passersby to constantly change the image of the city's main Avenue by rotating the giant golden wheel implanted inside the fountain designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, and letting it reflect in an ever changing way the surrounding urban landscape with the iconic City Hall building as a dramatic backdrop.
Built with the collaboration of Catari, Radical&positivo and Euphoric Generation.
