How to Design Organ Case Pipes

I write about the use of technology in this entry from my design blog that assisted me in the complex process of designing pipe groupings for organ case pipes. These are the pipes that you see laid out in some geometric form in the front of an organ case. I use examples from the first organ I built to describe the process and tools I developed to create a three-section front pipe grouping for the instrument.

A Design Narrative Based on Culture

 

by Steve Panizza

 

This is a narrative of community, sustainability, and pragmatism.

I am lately reacquainted with members of my Italian family. My grandfather Stefano immigrated to this country from his small village of Vermiglio located in the northern Italian region of the Alps. I have discovered through correspondence that the Alpine region of Europe is a region of shared culture regardless of national borders.

I find that my design language ostensibly comes from this region, an understanding that allows me to craft a design narrative that I identify as my own, one seemingly passed down through an ancestry of shared cross-border culture that engendered a strong sense of community and purpose through art, architecture, daily ritual, and even cuisine.
