STREET FURNITURE DESIGN BUILD ///////////////////////////////// I DESIGNED A SYSTEM OF FLAT-PACK PLYWOOD FURNITURE FOR CENTRAL 14TH ST NW BASED ON OUR FINDINGS FROM THE CHARRETTE. MY ROLES INCLUDED DESIGN DEVELOPMENT FOR THE FLAT-PACK PARTS, MANAGING A SUMMER APPRENTICE, COORDINATING CLIENT MEETINGS, COMMUNICATING WITH LOCAL PARTNERS, AND OVERSEEING THE CNC FABRICATION. THE KIT OF PARTS INCLUDED PIECES FOR A PLANTER, HIGH STOOLS, BAR TABLES, FOOT STOOLS, AND A SWING/MESSAGE BOARD. MANY OF THE PIECES HAD INTERCHANGABLE ANIMAL PROFILES. THE GOVERNING CONCEPT BEHIND THE DESIGNS WAS TO ALLOW FOR EASY ASSEMBLY/DISASSEMBLY ON THE SIDEWALK. DURING THE COURSE OF A WEEK, WE HELD A SERIES OF COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS IN A VACANT STOREFRONT IN WHICH RESIDENTS PARTICPATED IN SANDING, PAINTING, AND ASSEMBLING THE WOOD PIECES. THE FURNITURE BROUGHT IDEAS ABOUT ACTIVATING PUBLIC SPACES AND URBAN PLAY TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
