The Walter Project and Organ Case Architecture
January 27, 2018 14:59
Anything I do seems to have a unique identity that emerges if I build enough of whatever it is I am building. I always wanted that to be true of the organs I built where there would be a design evolution that would produce a definable family of instruments. The eighteenth century country parish organs of Gottfried Silbermann definitely form a common design family.
I needed to evolve a unique structural architecture though for a common design language to emerge. I did this by employing parametric solids modeling in the design process of various projects that I could define as both cabinet and structure. I talk about one such project in this design blog entry.
