Erica has worked her magic from this years endeavours, and the fledgling flight of the first episode of the enormously anticipate documentary is up on AKT II’s vimeo
And as if by magic, the Future of Design pavilion has been reborn on an island in Croatia. Armed with only this instruction manual Tobias from Hylemo has turned a lonely pile of ply into a majestic structure once more (and taken some nice photos, too).
Hopefully the Future of Design pavilion will now lead a long and happy life roaming free in the Adriatic. Not in the actual wet bit of the Adriatic, preferably.
The Future of Design Pavilion was unveiled this morning for the opening of Clerkenwell Design Week. The full story of the fantastic work the participating GCSE students put into the project, and how it made it from concept to construction can be see in our publication here, at http://tiny.cc/FutureOfDesign2016. Below is a timelapse showing how easy it was to build!
Special thanks to Annabel and Erica for their work on producing the book, and Erica’s timelapse.
Thanks to Steve, Lucy, and their family of nimble-fingered helpers we’ve built a scale mock-up of the pavilion, and Rich who’s taken some pretty darn atmospheric photos of it.
While pretty, this wasn’t all fun and games: lasercutting and assembling a 1:20 model using the same cutting pattern that we plan to use for the CNC routing and 1:1 build allowed us to do a spot of troubleshooting in advance of assembly.
Someone has been having too much fun on their weekends… We’ve started putting together a few physical models to test out the future of design pavilion concept both at 1:1 and at a smaller scale. More updates soon.
Great news, the first image of the forthcoming future of design pavilion in St James’s church garden, Clerkenwell, has been revealed! Thanks to everyone for their hard work in getting us to here, especially Steve, Annabel and Jamie the CGI guru.
Check back soon for more posts on our progress to the build at the end of May.
After the dust has settled on a hectic weekend we’ve uploaded the photos and lecture slides from the workshop and crits. A huge thanks to all the team involved and to our camera women Erica Choi for documenting all the fun.
Check out the future of design page and feel free to get in contact and use the lecture slides if you’re planning your own similar event.
