What have we done last week?
We are still quite in the design phase so the most important thing was to make those final propositions and decisions. Since we are divided in groups who have their own tasks and goals, it was important to push these as far as possible. During several meetings this week, we proposed our choices to the whole class and everybody could speak their minds about the pitched ideas.
Finally, at the end of the week we held a big general meeting where the final decisions were made. Now each group is working on finalising those ideas into detail. That way we now agreed on how the seating will look and work, how we will secure the building site and what the look of the kitchen will be. Meanwhile our structure group is working in close collaboration with our engineering professor Solveig to ensure that the structure will stand. We are now still finding some difficulties in the horizontal bearing of the walkway.
What is remaining to do and how do we organise ourselves?
The most important things we have to sort out now is how the building process will go through a follow-up list, put the 3D model in 2D drawings where all components are shown, the details of every element and for example decide how much screws every connection will need. Furthermore we are working on a poster that will inform the surrounding neighboorhoud on our plans there. We also got the good news from Sitio Erazio that they have some extra building materials and tools what will cut our costs a little bit. Check out their facebook to see what they’re up to. Finally, we are still in the search for donaters and sponsors.
We have almost reached our kickstarter goal!!! If you’re interested in our campaign, keep on donating untill we reached it!!
