From concept to fabrication
In this construction studio students explore the relationships between form, material, and structure and learn about the detail design process, including ergonomic design standards, material properties, joinery, and fabrication. In the process students investigate and evaluate construction joints and fabrication methods, build prototypes, and use the wood workshop to fabricate. Working in pairs, students design a bench that accommodates two people. The bench is built of at least 80% recycled or reclaimed wood and metal.
This course aims to develop a high level of craft and workmanship that expresses design ideas and sound built structure.
And the submission day!!!
