Shape to Fabrication is perhaps the largest annual architecture event in the Rhino community. This year it will be held on Nov 18-19. Hosted by Paul Cowell at Simply Rhino in the UK, this event attracts top talent from both the Rhino user base and third-party plugin providers. This event is a showcase of new projects that have been designed and fabricated using Rhino, as well as software advances relevant to the architecture industry.
This year, Daniel Hambleton from Halcrow will be presenting a piece modeled in T-Splines for Rhino from the Brian Jungen bench series, called “The ghosts on top of my head.”
The ghosts on top of my head (2010–11) is a series of public sculptures by renowned Vancouver-based artist Brian Jungen commissioned for Canada Plaza. It is comprised of three white powder-coated steel benches, each assuming the shape of a different antler: elk, moose and caribou. The ghosts on top of my head reference Harry Bertoia’s famous modernist furniture, and are illustrative of Jungen’s characteristically meticulous craftsmanship and profound study of design.
They were modelled entirely with Rhino 4.0 and T-Splines for Rhino.
