Models of the T.A.Z.

Here we see several models depicting different structures and materials. The background model is the one I chose to develop for the T.A.Z.. It is made of 4 millimeter coroplast and is proportionately exact to the actual T.A.Z. The middleground shows an example of the C60 molecule version in cardboard. I like to think of this as the pimped out version. In the foreground is one of the first proposed ideas. I investigated structures being made at Burning Man and came up with this with the help of a link from the Burning Man website. I did produce a life sized prototype made of steel conduit but it posed problems in the area of long term stability and didn't give me suitable options for covering the form.
