Caret 6

This paper by Kory Bieg tracks the design, fabrication and assembly of Caret 6, a modern Gothic vault project designed using advanced digital software and CNC fabrication technologies. Though not a pure Gothic vault in the traditional sense, the project takes advantage of the formal, structural and organizational techniques employed by many Gothic architects.

Every decision made in the design of the project was influenced by the inclusion of difference and asymmetry and balanced by the need for structural integrity, program and optimization.

Author relied on the use of current digital design tools to expedite the otherwise impractical fabrication and assembly process caused by the high level of differentiation of each piece.
