Rhino used in extremes: both old and new architecture

(Bob McNeel) #1

Next door to the Fulton Transit Center, a contemporary design using Rhino and Grasshopper, is the historic 124 year-old Corbin building. A new entrance to the Corbin building and street-level access to the subway is part of this Metropolitan Transit Authority project in New York. Another Rhino client, Boston Valley Terra Cotta is fabricating the terra cotta replacement parts on the historic building.

The Corbin building restoration was given an 2013 Award of Merit in Adaptive Reuse and Historic Preservation by the New York AIA.
