The stunning design and subsequent construction of the Basilica Gospe od Otoka (Solin, Croatia) can be attributed to Vyonyx Architecture, an architectural design and research office based in the UK, Croatia, and France.
Vyonyx used Rhinoceros and VisualARQ to realise this non-standard design and maintain BIM data throughout the process. VisualARQ objects were especially useful in creating the curved walls of the Basilica, enabling the designers to freely explore window positions and dimensions without needing to reconstruct the model repeatedly, all the while automatically generating the 2D documentation of every iteration.
The project is currently under construction.
