Watch a video documenting the fabrication, assembly and installation of the new piece in the Azimuth coffee shop designed by Elena Manferdini, principal of a Los Angeles firm specializing in the cutting edge of computer-aided design of exotic forms.
As a spring 2011 artist in residence at the College of Architecture, Manferdini led an elite student team in the design and fabrication of the colorful, floral-themed architectural installation. Students did the bulk of the fabrication work, which involved cutting and bending the sculpture's stylized aluminum flower petals using the CNC router, metal break and other tools available at the college's Digital Fabrication Facility, or Architecture Ranch, at the Texas A&M Riverside Campus.
