Artist Miguel Horn will be joined by Chris Landau of LANDAU Design+Technology in discussing the digital infrastructure they developed for the recently installed public artwork, ContraFuerte. Using a customized parametric design workflow, LiDAR and CAD, the sculpture was meticulously integrated into the surrounding architecture. The presenters will chart the course from concept to implementation and the many steps along the way to bring this new public art landmark to reality.
