The complex, woven, flowing ceiling was developed in CAD and
tested in physical models.
As CAD/CAM process clearly exceeded the budget for the
children’s bath ceiling, a rethinking of the form in thin, pliable, and
waterproof materials evolved. Full-scale models were built to balance the
retention of the original design with a low-tech constructibility. The
construction of a simple, rigid, and removable wood frame provided the base for
hand-cut triangles of white translucent polypropylene.
