Composite Architecture

Goetz is building two custom cupolas and a weathervane  for  the Staten Island  Children’s Museum. The male mold (pictured) is  5.5m in length. Here the part is getting a balsa core fitted before the inner skin is laid up. The complex shape will be laminated in a wetpreg fire retardant epoxy system.
