The project was undertaken as an extra-curricular project because of short timescales and the newness of Live Projects within the School of Architecture. Design work was completed towards the end of the academic year and fabricating and assembling during the summer break. The project was organised as co-design workshops with students, academics, Fareshare staff, project manager and structural engineer. Students led the production drawing stage. There was a significant ‘eureka’ moment, when student Alex Durie re-thought the design process from traditional design led to resource driven after the team failed to create a design, that when costed, was within the financial limit. Subsequently, a £48 eBay purchase of two hundred sheets of 450mm by 2400mm, 4mm thick plywood off cuts singularly determined the design solution. A comprehensive design quickly emerged and construction by students, academics, client and friends took place over 10 weeks during summer.
