Client: Westfield Malls
Location: Clearwater, FL - USA
"The Oasis" is an immersive installation created for Westfield malls in Clearwater, FL by the multi-disciplinary design firm The Urban Conga. The installation was created to be a pleasant and peaceful area among the chaotic routine of the mall. It becomes a sanctuary of conversation, relaxation, and play. The piece is made up of nearly 1,000 foam tubes that create an organic water like form sitting within a series of dichroic walls. A space for people to stop, engage, and connect with the people around them. The design uses its playfulness of materials to break barriers and connect people within the once disconnected chaotic space. As Plato once said "You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than a year of conversation." This is what The Urban Conga sets out to create with their unique interactive and playful work.
