Y Inge Y is an independent student project that grew out of an investigation in modular form in the “On The Bri(n)ck” class with professor Ingeborg M. Rocker of Rocker-Lange Architects at the GSD in the fall of 2009. It was recently completed for the Harvard Arts First festival in April of 2010.
The project was produced with the help of Hiroshi Jacobs, Jon Scelsa, Ben Lehrer, Doug Jack, & Julian Wu. The material is baltic birch plywood with a polyurethane finish, there were no mechanical fasteners used. There are over 3000 unique pieces in the sculpture which were cut using a laser-cutter and a CNC milling machine. All geometry was generated and numbered by Rhinoscript to organize the production and assembly of the pieces.
