Every production technique requires a focus on their specifi c demands and possibilities. This paper shows the whole design, optimization and production process includingpreliminary studies, preliminary design, form-fi nding and assembly based on a case study. All needed data for optimization in external software and for digital production is derived from a central parametric model programmed in Grasshopper. The result in a collaborative process between theory/practice, human/machine, software/hardware and analogue/digital is the Sparklerpavilion.
