Breakthrough Prize Fabrication

The Breakthrough Prize honors important achievements in Fundamental Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics. BWArchitects is honored to be on the team that designs the gala events at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California. We are also responsible for the production and delivery of the awards to the laureates.

This behind-the-scenes video documents the delivery of the Olafur Eliasson designed trophy. Titanium 3D prints are received from our direct metal laser sintering fabricator and then further refined to a reflective finish by our team in New York. Custom boxes are inscribed with individual plaques before delivery to NASA.

Photos of our event design for the 2015 gala can be seen in this gallery.
