Ian’s Week:

This week looked at increasing structure support in the form of steel L-bars and horizontal slats underneath the stringer of the Mungo House staircase. We have also chosen to fabricate the wood plants so that they ‘slot’ into the already fabricated steel marsh reed spindles. The spindles themselves have been recorded to detail their behaviors on angling for each iteration , and are also adjusted to match the ADA code of staying under 4″ spacing, for child safety.

Also being inspired by Scarpa, I made a layered wall mount grip rail with wood and steel, having the steel connection points go through the wood and into the wall. Structural support on the inside of the wall has not been decided yet.

This has been a good opportunity for myself to export Tabloid sheets to scale also. I have not gotten a chance to do this yet, and see it as something that will be more relevant in the future of the profession… using rhino in that way.
