Title: Pin Cascade (clock).
Year: 2009-2012 (Unrealised Project)
Site: Verona Tower, Tower Works, Leeds, UK.
Partners: MAAP, Bauman Lyons Architects and Yorkshire Forward.
Description: Initial proposal and mechanical maquette for a binary multiplier clock that will be constantly moving and will perform a cascade of "pins" on the hour.
Starting at the bottom and travelling horizontally along the row, one pin is pushed and remains out for each second. After each 60 seconds a larger pin is pushed out to signify the minute. These rows of pins build up the side of the Verona Tower until all 3600 pins (1 hour) are out. They then quickly reset starting at the top, creating a cascade down the face of the tower. Each hour will be shown along another row of even larger "pins".
