Spaces and Furniture
New collaborative design space in the Olin Library. Previously, the campus had little space for students to work on design projects outside of designated design classes.
Project workspace adjacent to the machine shop. Previously, students would work on projects on the floor and works-in-progress were piled up in corners.
The microlibrary is a deployable extension of the campus library.
I worked in a small team to build this in only four days.
Small group meeting area in the library for CAD or other computer work. Previously, students would huddle around laptops when collaborating. I designed and welded the table.
I attended Olin College, a relatively new engineering school in Massachussets (I was a member of the tenth graduating class). As the school is still new, students and faculty work together to apply the iterative engineering design process to improve the school.
While at Olin, I worked in small teams on a number of projects to improve the workspaces available for student projects. This involved writing proposals to faculty, laying out floorplans, designing furniture, procuring materials and TIG welding steel furniture.
