CARAPACE Is Moving Ahead at Clark Pacific in Fontana

Updated: Aug 20, 2020

Here is an update report from Doug Noble, USC School of Architecture, a one day snapshot of what USC's team is accomplishing toward their installation in Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California:

"We completed sanding of the carapace mold today at Clark Pacific Precast in Fontana (photo with Michael). It is not perfect, but we have to stop sometime. Macky Lopez had to head home to San Antonio. He was already seriously missed today!


Next week (after August 17) Patrick will Gelcoat it. We removed panel 17 to allow for the Gelcoat not to stick the panels together. Panel 17 (tiny triangle wedge) has to be removable between casts 2 and 3, so it cannot be gelcoated stuck in place.
