Truly a mind teaser. 2 ½” round powder-coated aluminum tubes were precisely placed apart from each other at different angles to create the criss-cross basketball net look. An inner ring of tubes and an outer ring of tubes were needed to make the proper twist to accomplish such an amazing architectural feature. BIM modeling was used to ensure every angle and rotation was 100% spot on.
