Tangential Dreams at Burning Man 2016

Hi Guys,

Very happy to let you know that our project Tangential Dreams, built for Burning Man 2016 (pictures below), was shortlisted for the Architizer Award! Designed entirely with Grasshopper3D, the project uses the tangents of helicoid curves to maximize off-the-shelf timber into an expressive installation. We stenciled 1,000 people's dream on the tangents for people to read as they climb and write on the structure.

I hope you can help us win this…

The project this year is called Tangential Dreams, a curvy tower made of straight lines following the tangents of a sine curve. This allows us to use off-the-shelf timber, minimise wastes and…

Save the Rhinos

Hi guys,

This post has nothing to do with the software but with the animal !
The Eastern Black Rhino is getting dangerously close to extinction, with only around 500 left in the wild.
