Here are some pictures of the 3D-printed awards that I created for the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Wintergreen Awards Ceremony last month. I was first contacted this past summer, when the USGBC was looking for a local artist to help create a unique award piece, using sustainable materials and representing their membership, community and mission. The design went through several iterations, changes, and material explorations.

We finally settled on the top globe piece 3D-printed in Alumide (a plastic infused with aluminum flecks) and a reclaimed wooden base, cut from 100-year old salvaged wood from a DC rowhouse. I found the wood at Community Forklift, a Nonprofit Thrift Store For Home Improvement, and spray-painted it with a glossy clear coat.
