                                    The barriers in this final model are the most noticeable change. They no longer                                                                  need to support the horizontal structure, so we were able to make them out of                                                                    smaller sections of wood. They are linked together with diagonal bars, which are                                  much stronger then the horizontal linked previously used.

    This climbing area is also made in the same spirit as the exterior barriers.

  • Week 3

    Par Edward Forsey, Lisa Carminati, 21/03/17


                 This week, we worked with the barriers and ways to fix the horizontal surfaces on the inside of the course.

                    The barriers rest on a triangular brackets which are fixed to the protostructure. They are made of                                 big panels which can be prefabricated and then linked between them.

                       This system creates a very strong structure, which can then be used to fix the elements to.

                Here we can see the method used to hold up the steps. A wooden step, strengthened in the shape of a T.                                         It then rests on two pieces of wood which are in turn fixed to the barriers.

    We chose to use stairs as an element of our course. For this reason, they are not straight, but narrow and the space between the steps is small. 

    The main idea was to create a loop so that children could take the course again and again without going outside.

    Here the structure is not complete but the end of the slide will be connected with the rounded corridor.

                The whole structure is made out of parts so that the construction and the assembly would be much easier.

    - What is "rooms" ? -

    Room

    noun

    plural noun: rooms

        - Space that can be occupied or where something can be done.

        - A part or division of a building enclosed by walls, floor, and ceiling.

                                                                                                            - Oxford Dictionary




    We decided to work with the first definition - A space, or even multiple spaces, which will allow a function to be performed within. We chose to create a course, which would be inspired by such elements which can be found in a playground.  


     

    We have a setting, and defined limits, it's time to develop the idea

                                                         

    Let yourself be guided by the lines on the transition steps,

    based on the height of the protostructure's horizontal branches...

    They are made with a perspective effect - the first step is bigger than the last one - and it also tricks the eye because the                                                                       oblique plan seems to be horizontal.
