Rigging Frame

Scope: Complete design of a rigging frame to lift a fifty-ton 3D-printed concrete house, or a liveable sculpture, as described by its author. Originally it was brought in in four separate parts. Now, it had to be moved in one piece. New rigging frame connects to an existing steel understructure and the main challenge was to control the deformations during the operation and making sure the concrete sculpture remains intact.
