today the 5th years explained the outcomes for the next 2 weeks. Splitting into 3 teams, the BA students will create models, instruction manuals, a construction sequence and present our work back to projekts mcr

meet our collaborator!! john haines @projektsMCR

who is....

"passionate and enthusiastic about passing on their love for all things wheeled to anyone who’s interested!"

we will be working alongside john and projekts to create a sound barrier, so music events can be held in the evenings

workshop 1 - big draw

for todays first workshop the BA1+ BA2 students were asked to create collages based on their initial thoughts/ideas of the project. using selected precedents studies and the site plan, section and elevations. this workshop allowed quick and sketchy ideas to be created as a starting point for our design process

day 3! starting the day with site modelling

today the students were asked to make a model of the skatepark at scale 1:100...

once completed the model will be used as a tool to help guide our design process

just after lunch we talked all things acoustics!

our sound barrier requires some technical thinking in terms of sound acoustics, frequency, sound absorption + reflection, as well as a careful consideration of materials. this presentation was a way of talking through some of the fundamental principles of sound/acoustics which then can help inform our design decision

DAY 4!! - the day started with a presentation rounding up our thoughts and ideas from the first 3 days...

our group discussion allowed us to talk through different ideas/iterations and answer any questions about the project so far
Posted 12 May 2023 23:08
following the group discussion the students engaged in another design workshop: sketching, model making, prototyping various iterations of our modular shape all whilst considering our requirements! the students were able to use the site model made on DAY 3! as a tool for their thinking

TEAMS for WEEK 2!!

next week we are splitting into 3 teams: model making, instruction manual and construction sequence
Posted 12 May 2023 23:12
DAY 5!!

today we started the morning with a quick briefing, going over our final design . splitting into our 3 teams to start model making, 3d modelling, the instruction manual and construction sequence
Posted 15 May 2023 16:57
output DAY 5!!

our individual team outputs are underway!!

team 1 - have started working on their 1:20 scale model, including the site model, individual modular shapes, as well as starting a laser cutting file for our 1:2 model

team 2 - have started working on the instruction manual, with a line drawing of our modular shape, as well as deciding on tools and materials needed for each piece

team 3 - the construction sequence team have spent the day 3d modelling the whole project, piecing each modular shape together and putting it on site

DAY 6!!!

5th years brought in everyone a hearty breakfast consisting of ham + cheese croissants and chocolate...

to entice the undergrads ahead of a fun packed day of 1:20 model making
Posted 16 May 2023 17:54
1:20 model making day!!

the morning continued with half of the group cutting, gluing and painting together our modular forms. Once we had a row of our modular forms stuck together we tested them on site
