How can we take a charging station for computers and devices in a university campus, and use it to help remove the stigma behind solar energy, whilst retaining a beautiful, coherently designed space?
Cypress wood, galvanize steel
450 square feet / 42 square meters
George Washington University
Fusion 360: t-splines and surfacing, KeyShot, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Manual woodwork, Manual metal machining, 3D printing (models).
Three main components:
01 solar panels
03 desk designated for work
CONCEPT STUDIES + research
By process of sketching and interviewing various students, the team began to understand what the space needed, and what we could not afford with our deadline.
Sketches + CAD Concepts > 3D printed models
This meant producing over 50 CAD models and 100s of sketches.
Fabrication : machine shop
The fabrication process took place in two places: machine shop and on-site construction, all conducted and worked on by the student team.
Fabrication : on-site construction
Final work after construction.
