The Pyrosphere project was an intense collaboration between artists, engineers, pyro-technicians, software and hardware designers, and fabricators. Pomodoro Design headed the aesthetic and structural design for the five legs that would support the 1800 lb 22' dia. sphere and pyrotechnics safely 15' off the ground and withstand the design wind speed of up to 100 mph. We also helped facilitate the fabrication with highly detailed and accurate 3D models that allowed us to rush manufacture everything and assemble the Pyrosphere in it's entirety for the first time at it's debut event without a hitch.
Pomodoro Design (previously 4c design studios) collaborated with Ronit Eisenbach, Peter Sparling, and Terri Sarris to explore intersections of place, memory and identity through architecture, dance, video and poetry. Displayed at the Detroit Institute of Arts and published in I.D. magazine. Pomodoro Design headed the structural design, detailing and fabrication oversight for this installation. We also were involved in helping solidify the design with the use of 3D models, renderings and animations that were later used for fund raising.
