"C³ was founded in 1991 by Rick Smith who began working with three-dimensional computer graphic systems in the 1970s. With over a decade of experience working at Lockheed Aircraft Corporation and IBM, Rick helped develop advanced computer modeling software and techniques for a rapidly evolving aerospace industry. In 1991, C³ was contacted by Frank O. Gehry & Associates who were seeking a way to modernize their current in-house design processes, which relied heavily upon antiquated methods, and to digitally define a new direction for Mr. Gehry's challenging designs.After a gruelling 72 hour technology proving session to digitally capture the initial Walt Disney Concert Hall design, Mr. Gehry felt C³ was the right company to lead them in this new direction.Beginning with the Fish Sculpture for the 1992 Olympics and concluding with the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, C³ grew to become ten highly skilled designers working with Mr. Gehry’s staff for over a twelve year period. C³ supported, managed and maintained their digital master models for all their projects up to the completion of the modeling for the Ray & Maria Stata Center on the Massachusetts Instituted of Technology campus in Cambridge, MA. C³’s Virtual Build process and tools played a significant role in revolutionizing Mr. Gehry's overall design processes, helping to make his office one of the most technologically advanced architectural design studios in our lifetime." to find out more...
