Inhabitable Rope Studio
First Year Interior Architecture, MADA Monash University 2013 / Tutors: Matthew Bird, Michael Spooner & Jane Caught / Photography Christine Francis
The Inhabitable Rope Studio focused on proposing and physically crafting large and complex design-make installations. Students responded to a design brief asking them, in groups of 10-12 to construct an interactive and performative habitable shelter. The shelter should be adaptable, comprised of a series of like pieces, articulated or an assemblage of parts that could be reconstructed into a succession of spaces and inhabited by groups of varied sizes. Materials were limited to rope, fabric and scavenged.
