Toby and I are happy to introduce our engineers for the Burning Man projects: Harri Lewis and Stephen Melville from Ramboll Computational Design (RCD). We had our first meeting this morning (with Georgia and Thanasis) in our DS10 studio. Couple updates:
We are working on the best construction sequence for the two projects as well as the structural analysis diagrams (defining the size and amount of ground anchors) to receive the first part of the Burning Man grant. We will start booking our plane tickets very soon, DS10 people please make sure to confirm your attendance!!
The Fractal Cult (abstract) will have a thicker sub-structure which will transfer the loads of the cantilevers all the way down to a solid base anchored to the ground. The junctions could be similar to the Trada pavillion by RCD with hinges as well as notches.
More info very soon.
