Case Study: Monumental Globe Sculpture for The Carole Weinstein International Center

When our client the University of Richmond began plans to build The Carole Weinstein International Center, they wanted a monumental globe sculpture to be a central feature of the building designed by Glavé & Holmes.  Tektonics was first commissioned to do the globe design, based on static versions the planners had seen elsewhere.  Tektonics was then hired to build a fully kinetic six-foot diameter steel and bronze  globe, which can spin on its own axis.  Click through the gallery for images that show how we managed this project.
