Tanagrams have blanketed commercial architecture around the globe. From mirrored paneling to glass bulges, fluid and reflective edges continue to make their mark.

This glistening triangular sculpture is a pile of dynamic energy against it’s natural surroundings at the McClelland Sculpture Park in Melbourne, Australia.
