A nice little sketch of the Clubhouse canopy, some hard work gone in to this from all of our first and second years, this great drawing from Francisco came a few days ago before we had our crash course in canopy detailing.

A working test model of our retractable canopy design, might look a little sketchy but says everything about our phasing strategy in regards to the clients brief.

After my poor attempt at surfacing the pitch last week, we have employed a new groundsman and the site model is looking just a little bit better.
Posted 30 Apr 2018 15:24
After days of modelling and testing, connections and Joints appear key to the success of the design, simplicity seems to be the way forward.

The turf has been laid on the site model. Just waiting for the grounds man to head over with a bucket of white paint.

Us 5th years have learned a thing or two about 1:200 trees this morning. We have realised that our undergraduates are potentially better model makers than us.

Crash course on site topography and contours this morning. Now we can get on with this model!

Canopy designs for the client well under way. Permeability of materials and form the key components of this design concept. The clients need for consistent use alongside seasonal and diurnal change the focus here.

4 days down and progressing with some great ideas. A trip to the football museum this morning revealed a strong aesthetic and identity of existing football architecture. Something our students are now looking to incorporate in their designs, an eye opening trip.

To all fellow Footbuilder's ...

Please find below a link to a 3D Visual Fly-through of the first stage of the proposed Wythenshawe AFC Plan of works for the site. The video was released upon completion of the Clubhouse in early 2017. The Stands/Seating shown in the video are yet to be built and designs have changed slightly. However, this is a representation of the first stage in the clubs further vision of upscaling. Our design will be centered around extension and growth of the scheme outlined in this video.

Quick update for team Footbuild!

Quick shot of Jack getting a feel for the site after a meeting with our collaborators. Alongside all first and second year students, we will aim to meet with our collaborators as frequently as possible throughout the 2 week programme and arrange a visit to site within the first few days to get to grips with the site and clubs vision, this will be imperative to the projects success.

Quick update for team Footbuild!

Here is a panoramic shot pitch-side from a raised embankment. Wythenshawe AFC alongside all FA affiliated clubs must meet certain criteria to accommodate spectators as they climb the football ladder. Discussion has been made in regards to a phasing strategy to allow the stands to grow alongside the teams footballing success'. A lot of scope for development and creativity here due to the sites topography and scale, alongside our collaborators vision for the club moving forward.
