Bing Thom Architects and Fazioli have created a custom instrument designed to reflect Westbank’s latest architectural project in the heart of downtown Vancouver, The Butterfly. The architects sought to capture the same experiential qualities inherent in the design of this futuristic tower. The lightness of the legs and rails echoes the open garden breezeways, while its delicately sculpted geometry recalls the soft undulations of the tower’s skin, abstracted from the surrounding landscapes.
The technical files present on this website represent only a selection of the many special “Art Case” pianos built so far. Since wood is a natural product whose features are unique and unrepeatable, the veneers visible in these pictures are purely indicative and non-committing with regard to future creations.
