Bandshell 36′ – Section in Alum


Bandshell 36' - Section Alum.

This is a section of the larger, 36′ tall Bandshell, one of nineteen (19). This triangular rib band is a truckable entity. We had to create new planes of reference for each section in the computer model, using Rhinoceros Software, and bring those sections down to the floor, rotating them so the plane of reference was a horizontal plane, useful to grid and jig and stand up frames at angles and direction and cut, weld and fabricate conveniently for the worker. We had made about nine aluminum sections, big, heavy and welded, when Frank’s buyer pulled out. He eventually found a new buyer, but it required a new fabricator, which turned out to be in France.
