For Design Miami’s first annual event, Marc was awarded Designer of the Year award and was commissioned to design an outdoor structure. The DASH Fence is a 100-foot fence installation at the Design & Architecture High School (DASH), in the heart of the Miami Design District. Loosely based on rippling waves due to its proximity to the ocean, the design consists of a thin metal frame of 400 vertical fins of varying depths that create a series of changing patterns. The appearance of the fence shifts based on the position of the viewer. Up close, the fence allows a full view into and out from the DASH courtyard. However, from a distance, the surface becomes fully opaque and appears to undulate as the viewer passes by.
