Bouldering is climbing without ropes and it has become increasingly popular in Australia in recent years. BiGfiSh collaborated with Landscape Architect, Stuart Beekmeyer, a keen bouldering enthusiast to realise a design in steel rather than the traditional concrete finish. The Bouldering Wall we produced is a faceted, solid metal structure. The interior of the freestanding structure has an accessible hatch which allowed us to incorporate power inside it and design an opaque acrylic roof which glows at night. The Wall also has a guitar jack which users can plug into - when not climbing they can be playing.
