UPSIDE DOWN BUILDINGS – SHELLMANIA STRIKES CENTRAL LONDON

Education, Upside Down Buildings

We’ve had a busy Saturday of funicular form-finding and testing to destruction hanging plaster and fabric upside down and then satisfyingly smashing the finished shells, although Sunday’s Archikids workshop was rained off in true British summertime style. Apparently we were too messy to be allowed to continue inside any buildings, upside down or not!

It was a great day, with a 100 or so kids coming along to build some form-found plaster shells. We even supported a whopping 15kg on one shell before we had to resort to loading it with a small child to determine it’s failure capacity. More info here.
