Inspired by the market stalls along the river Seine in Paris, originally used by booksellers to sell used and antiquarian books.
We have designed market stalls made of OSB, which will be sustainably sourced and easy to construct with. They will be fixed in place to the wall along the cycle path, the stall-holders will then be able to open them up and put on display a variety of things to engage with the community and be a part of the daily city display.

At the end of last week, we started to finalise our designs through a series of sketches. Today we have been exploring, discussing, and experimenting our ideas through 3D modelling. Visualising our ideas, and putting our proposals into the wider context, made us think about construction and modularity methods which we will be exploring further this week.

This week the students have been sketching and designing the community spaces along our site. They have also been making collages to show our intentions and the importance of community engagement, by finding ways in which local residents, community centres, and schools in the neighbourhood can be involved in the scheme.

Our modular kitchen manual!
We have been working on modular construction methods, whereby parts of the building are prefabricated and delivered to the site and put together. Now our community kitchen is easily unpacked, assembled, and can move around the site.
