The 5th Year students got their hands dirty competing with the 1st and 2nd Year students and they failed miserably (joking). They started with a bracing structure and repeating the patterns as they make their way up to the peak but after a few minutes, it fell as the marshmallows melted.

We had an icebreaking session "Who can build the highest tower?" involving spaghetti and marshmallows, competing with the other two teams. Team 2 started with a large base and build their way up incorporating triangular structure and it was successful! They are the selected winners of the competition because their structure still stands.

For the event, we will construct a portable folding storage for the Manchester Modernist Society. This 1:1 requires a precise detail for structure and connection between components. Pobi Shop will guide us on the model making session and making sure every materials and steps are taken in an excellent way. If you want to know more about Pobi Shop, you can check out their website:

Pobi Shop was born as a hobby in a shed in 2012, by Miroslaw Osmolski. The aim was to create a simple solution that will work in our everyday life. Fascination from creating those unconventional decorations have led to more and more items being produced, with love and care by their hard-working team!

Our second and final week will start with a special visit from the Pobi Shop, based in Batley, they design wooden furnitures that would help with the development of the adaptable design trolley. In the afternoon, the students will have the opportunity to develop the design after giving a feedback from the coordinators and the Pobi Shop.

On the second day, we will have another final presentation from the students and just start to plan the model-making of the adaptable trolley.

5 students will be appointed to start with the model-making at the b.15 workshop while the rest will be in the room producing drawings for the exhibition on Friday for the next two days.

The final day we will have an exhibition of our adaptable trolley hosted by us and the Modernist Society.

This is what we will be doing for the first week. On our first day, we will have an ice-breaking session and in the afternoon a "Modernist trip" where we go around and study the Modernist buildings around the city of Manchester.

We are excited to have the Modernist Society to give an introductory lecture the next day to the students and in the afternoon the students will start to brainstorm ideas to design the adaptable trolley.

The next two days, the students will start to develop the design and start making sketch models. This will be coordinated by our sketching and model-making team.

On our final day we will have a crit session with the students and finalise the design.

Introducing Trolleyfest! This year we will be collaborating with the Modernist Society which we are very thrilled to work with alongside Pobi Shop which specialises in making bespoke wooden furniture. Our main agenda for this event is to design a portable display to transport and promote literature and trinkets sold by the Modernist Society.
