Lighthouse Structure The Lighthouse was modeled by Sabetta Matsumoto using Mathematica and Rhinoceros 3D software; one of the principles in the design was inspired by the Zip-Form system by Edmund Harriss and Emily Baker, which eases the production of complex curving forms made from flat sheets, in this case steel. It was CNC cut out of mild steel andContinue reading “Lighthouse – Fabrication”
