The Coliseum

In the spring semester of 2020 I had the opportunity to tech design a 30' Diameter, 3 tiered, semicircular Coliseum for a production of Caligula. Given the scale of the project and time constraints I developed a tech design that would allow our CNC machine to do the work for us. I divided the the semicircle into 12 pie like slices. Assembly on the platforms was a breeze! It took me about 2 hours working by myself to assemble one.

Like many 2020 projects, a global pandemic got in the way and the coliseum was never finished. Owen Reese was instrumental in the process. He made the drafting package from my 3d model.
