My biggest constraints will be time, aesthetic design, delicacy, manufacturability, transportation.
Time: I am in many classes and will have to partition time to get this project finished to my liking.
Aesthetic Design: The Pagoda must express an ancient Chinese aesthetic. It may be easy to stray from this aesthetic as problems arise during manufacturing, so I will need to focus on staying within ancient Chinese aesthetics.
Delicacy: The Pagoda will likely be made out of light cardstock which may be very fragile. Effort will need to be made to keep the project safe, and in one piece.
Manufacturability: The cutouts will be very complex and therefore I plan to use a laser cutter for the project.
Transportation: I usually take a bus or motorcycle to school, so transportation may be difficult. I will explore other options, like having a friend drive me in during presentation days.
