Natural Beauty Comes to the Fore

Designed by Jin Choi and Thomas Shine of Choi + Shine Architects, The Urchins, captures the imagination, delivering viewers to another world of delicate beauty and artistry.

This remarkable installation was inspired by sea urchin shells, which are enclosed yet lightweight, delicate and open. Their textured and permeable surface interacting with light creates openness, while the pattern's mathematical repetition brings visual rhythm and harmony.

When viewed against a light background, the Sea Urchin's natural form reveals one of the most spectacular patterns found in nature.
