At 5.2m high and 1.7m wide, the Curtain Door is comprised of 40 sections of 254mm-thick Burma teak and sits between a entrance’s concrete walls. Each section has been carved to incorporate 160 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, one wire rope, and a hidden counterweight. Stacked one above the other in the closed position, each plank can then rotate by a simple push causing the door to reconfigure into a sinusoidal curve.
