Designing gothic towers in 2005 was a whole lot different then it was in the gothic ages. Using steel (tensile force) instead of stone (pressure force) sounds counterintuitive to start with but the whole pipeline of designing is quite different. To be able to get from a rough sketch to a an art piece 10 meters high and 11000 pieces, a lot of technology is involved for translating human ideas to machine executable cutting plans ready for assembly, transport and show.
