GROUP B: Final Isometric of the secondary design
The above post is the final model of Group B which is our secondary option. Their concept was to have a Maker Space ,which is compact and holds foldable seating.
The width of the Maker Space is 3500MM and the height is 2100MM. It can be easily moved into the lift as well as different spaces.When the maker space is unfolded , it can accommodate 4-5 people.

Results of our experiment.Initially,we put up a paper in the studio to test with it. After a while, we put up another paper in one of the Lifts to experiment public's engagement with our concept.
By the end of the day, both the papers are filled with loads of doodles and sketches drawn by students and faculty. Learning from the experiment, we can conclude that our concept will work within a public environment.

The above post is the 1:200 working model of Group B. Their concept was to have a Maker Space ,which is compact and holds a foldable table. Seating will fit in the lower section of the cabinet.
The width of the Maker Space is 3500MM and the height is 2100MM. It can be easily moved into the lift and into different spaces.When the table is unfolded, it can accommodate 4-5 people.

Our approach to the Maker Space, was to have a de-stressing space apart from designing space for storage.
The idea of de-stressing here is that you draw a small sketch on one side of the paper and leave it for everyone to fill in their ideas. It encourages people to come and draw their thoughts. The doodles can be anything - from sharks, to houses, to cats. What is important is that, one channels their thoughts creatively into something funny and quirky, ultimately feeling de-stressed.

Today, as per the session plan, we started with Mike O'Reilly's induction on Book Making.This idea of book making was inspired by the Book collection displayed in Special Collections. MA students along with the BA students actively participated in this workshop as one team. This exercise additionally yielded sketchbooks which will be used throughout the two weeks.This exercise was used to understand the project from a maker space user's perspective, considering the space one needs, the time frame, and the materials used. The books were made by folding , sewing and glueing materials together.

TUESDAY - 27/03/2019 -
At the end of the day, we all had our own beautiful Hand Made Books and Turkish Fold Maps which will be used as diaries for the next two weeks. We really enjoyed the process. Additionally, This session played a crucial role in bonding of BA and MA students.

Our collaborator 'The Special Collections' require a maker space that is foldable, modular and movable. We plan to design a compact structure, that can be unfolded and used when required and then folded away for storage when necessary. The precedent in the GIF above works on a similar idea where the maker space can be packed into a box when not in use. It can then be unfolded and converted into a personalized workspace. The emphasis of this particular design lies in it's MOBILITY due to it's sturdy wheels, FLEXIBILITY in expansion and MULTI-USE modular compartments
