Crusty Demons Skull Truss (2010)

Project Description:

Designing a 8.0m Skull Using Trussing Structure for Crusty Demons Daredevils
2011 — Design Quintessence Pty Ltd, Sydney, Australia

"Here at Design Quintessence, we believe truss can be used to build anything so of course the answer was “Yes!” This 9m tall truss skull was one of our most challenging custom truss designs as it took a while to get the form and “personality” of the skull right. Trepidation from factory staff in making and building such an unusual structure soon turned into excitement and pride when they completed the fabrication. As with any custom designs, we used as many standard truss components as we could so that they could be used in other everyday applications (ensuring the production company achieves a much faster return on investment). The skull structure has won an international award and been copied in countries as far afield as Mexico City." -DQ Website
