Developing a methodology for design and fabrication is imperative to the process of actualizing. Actualizing for this project is the ability to transform a scalar or digital model into a full scale object or space. At the moment I am using a CNC router and Zund knife cutter to construct models that allow me to test the double curvature and sewing tolerances required for the main body of the tent. The next step will be a full scale prototype before moving into final production.
