The booklet has been an important part of the process where students had to analyse and consider every detail of their construction sequence in order to be easily understood by anyone who wants to create their design.

Sample of pages included in the construction sequence booklet. Students created the booklet as a step by step construction sequence including dimensions, cost and assembly process in order to be easier for our collaborators to create the workbench.

Final line drawings from 'Superslot' team. Students considered cost and materiality and due to the tight budget they used standard sized materials while aiming for the least possible waste of material.

Benchworkers and our collaborators! Our event has come to an end. A big thank you to all the students for their great work and effort throughout our events sessions!!
Good luck with your studio submission. See you around!

And the winner is.......team STACKED!
After discussion our collaborators chose team's 'stacked' design as it was very flexible and customisable! Our collaborators are planning to make a sample of the design by the end of May!

Today it was the final presentation to our collaborators Vicky and Simi from Luna. Students presented their final models and booklet explaining their design process, materiality, connections and cost.
Simi and Vicky were very impressed of all the designs and had a hard time picking the winner!

After our events session with the students we worked on our events video. We made interviews both to the students and the co-ordinators talking about the event brief, aims and experience.
Next steps: editing and finalising the video!

Today was the last working day before the presentation on Monday! Students were working on the final touches on their models at the wood workshop as well as at the studio space. Other members of the teams were working on finalising their construction booklets in order to make it as detailed as possible.
Can't wait for the presentation!!

Today the students divided the work to model making and booklet making. While some students were at the wood workshop making models other students were working on the booklet at the studio!
Great teamwork benchworkers!

Just a quick reminder for tomorrow!! Get ready for an exciting model making day!! Bring materials, cutters and glues!
Posted 25 Apr 2018 14:58
Students have been working on their final design looking into the final details regarding connections, materials and cost. They focused on preparing the files for the models that they will present to our collaborator on Monday!
There will be models in 1:5, 1:10 as well as 1:1 connection parts!
Looking forward to an exciting model making day!!

After the discussion with our collaborator Simi, students took their design proposals a step forward considering materiality and connections in detail. Students looked into different providers and the materiality dimensions in order to minimise the waste of materials.
Looking forward to the final drawings and models!!

First presentation to our collaborator!!
Our collaborator Simi from Luna has visited today for the first presentation of the design concepts from the students. Simi had the chance to talk to the students and give feedback! It was an impressive collection of design ideas!
Now students will start looking into materiality and costs!
Posted 23 Apr 2018 12:06
Today students continued developing their design ideas! Connections and joints were the main point of discussion that needs further development and exploration. Study models are essential to that point of design!!
Keep up the good work benchworkers!
Posted 20 Apr 2018 15:36
Today students were asked to present their first design ideas to the group. There were all very interesting design concepts that will be further developed in the next few days!!
Great work benchworkers!
Posted 20 Apr 2018 10:57
Students looked into precedents and started sketching their first ideas!
Posted 18 Apr 2018 19:07
It has been a great start benchworkers!! After a small introduction to the brief and getting to know each other, students were divided in three groups and started working on their designs!

Welcome to Events 18!
My name is Stephanie Papalla and Iím a 5th year member of the Work bench team! I am from Cyprus and I graduated my undergrad from Manchester school of architecture in 2016! I did my year out at a local firm -mainly handling housing projects - at my hometown Larnaca. Aside from architecture I love traveling and exploring new places. Iím really looking forward to getting to know you all and working together during the events weeks.

As our Events program is fast approaching itís perfect time to get to know each other better! Stay tuned for our next posts!

Great meeting today with our collaborator Vicky from Luna!
It was a very interesting discussion about the project brief, specifications of the project and design ideas!
We will now research materiality, cost and construction!
It will be a fantastic real-life project where students will have an active role in all the design stages hoping to contribute to the design in their own way!
More information about the project brief soon!
