Art installation for the Guadalupe River Trail in San Jose, CA. I did a bit of everything on this. 3d modeling, rendering, physical modeling, 3d structural modeling*, fabrication consulting. I used Grasshopper to help do a lot of the really incredibly tedious stuff, like making fully annotated drawings of every single arc segment of pipe (several 1,000).

*Structural modeling: It's more accurate to say that I assisted the very able structural engineer, Andrew Nasser, by doing some of the grunt work in Autodesk Robot and later making the structural drawings to his specifications.
