Week 1: Welcome to our Collab/Fab Studio blog!

With the first week of studio behind us, I’d like to welcome everyone to our new blog site.  We are a group of 15 architecture students from the University of Washington, some undergrads, and some grad students.  We created this site as a tool to share our studio project with the public.

This quarter we will be working in collaboration with the Twisp PDA to help develop and revitalize a former forest service site in Twisp, WA.  The community in Twisp came together and decided that the single most unifying interest in the community was gardening and agriculture, so our studio is planning to design a prototype greenhouse for the site.  During this studio we will be exploring opportunities for the reuse of buildings and materials that exist on the site.  We will also be exploring ways in which digital fabrication can aid in the use of these materials.

During our first week, we have been researching our site, and existing precedents in greenhouse construction.  We also had a great introduction to scrap shell fabrication by our fearless leader, Rob Corser.  He introduced us to new tools and building techniques while we helped him work on some experimental shells built from scrap 2×4.
