The Climber, an interactive sculpture designed by Ganymede Design Group, will be hosted in the interior space of the Chicago Children’s Museum at Navy Pier. The structure will encompass a number of steel profiles playfully arranged for the interaction of children and adults. Given the nature of the project and its fast-track design schedule, CORE studio was asked to help rationalize workflows for its analysis and documentation. Thornton Tomasetti used proprietary software (Konstru) to translate geometry from SketchUp to Revit to facilitate coordination.
