Hi Victor
that's quite an offer mate,
at the moment I'm wrestling with some structural issues on a largish public sculpture proposal (seems I have the job if council engineers give the ok)
The sculpt is on the facade of a building in Sydney cbd.
The piece is 7mtrs high and 4mtrs wide and will be constructed in a combination of polished,brushed and powdercoated aluminium.
The central (curved, organic?) components will be in polished riveted panels,
I can think of a couple of ways of achieving this ( forming over fiberglass, or alloy frame) but not certain which would be best,
Is this within your area of expertise?
any feedback from any forum members would also be greatly appreciated.
(the last pic gives some idea of scale)
cheers john
