Translations from Model to Building

Kipuka Makai in its nearly-built form is looking a lot like the process models. For comparison: 1) 3D printed model from the digital model, 2) an early sketch model, and 3) a construction site snapshot. Kipuka Makai is a pavilion on the island of Maui that is designed to amplify the ecological and geological richness of the upland site while tempering the climate and rocky terrain for visitors. Pavilion design: FLOAT Architectural Research and Design (Erin Moore); Structural and fabrication design: Mark Donofrio.
