• Laser cut and CNC folded artwork in production 13 March 2017 | View comments

  • Back in late 2015, we were commissioned to develop a public artwork for a Fremantle High School extension. The school's curriculum uniquely has specialist teaching in marine and maritime studies and is located close to the beach and wetlands significant to the local Whadjuk community. So, it goes without saying that the artwork, as part of the structure's soffit, was inspired by being underwater and waves. 

    Working in Rhino, Solidworks and Grasshopper, the shop drawings were completed by Composite Components (Bibra Lake, WA) and the laser cut and CNC folded components fabricated by Unique Metals (Wangara, WA). Last week we finally saw the first of 9 assemblies being installed on site. I think the photos tell the story. 

    Images: digital design, view into skylight from top, assembly one on site, assembly being hoisted into place, assembly fixed to beams, closeup of viewing into the skylight/ oculus with reflections of the sky. Photos by author, 2017.
