Whilst researching materials for the design of my Folly, I came across an artist called Rita McBride, who has designed a sculpture called Mae West using carbon fibre tubes, from this design I have taken my inspiration.
Mae West stands in Effnerplatz Square, Bogenhausen Quarter, Munich. The sculpture has the form of a hyperboloid and consists of a double structure made out of carbon fibre tubes, standing 52m high overall, has a diameter of 32m at the bottom and 19.5m at the top, with a 7.5m waistline.
I watched the most amazing time lapse of the sculpture being constructed, link at the bottom for your reference.
