Ann Arbor Municipal Center Sculpture

Team: Nathan King, Bob Pavlik

The project involves the fabrication of a series of milled foam molds for use in the casting of a large, permanent sculptural installation at the Ann Arbor Municipal Center. The sculpture, designed by Herbert Dreiseitl-(LOEB ’11), consists of a vertical cast bronze element and a horizontal waterway that together carry water through the site. Provision are made for the molding and casting of these elements at a Michigan foundry. The research explores the translation of hand sketches into digital data for robotic tooling and production. Molds for bronze and concrete castings have being produced on the multiaxis robotic mill.
