this blog is dedicated to the bucky lab from the TU Delft faculty of Architecture. Within the mastercourse we design, develop and at the end build architecture and building construction related prototypes. Its a "get your hands dirty" approach in which the students learn how to translate concepts from sketch into working prototypes. We try to live the spirit of buckminster fuller: what ever you can imagine, you can also build!
Today was quite a calm day, most of the students had a presentation in the faculty, so it was plenty of space available. The cardboard dome team get in action and tested our selfmade knives for the jigsaws, and we have to say: It works perfectly, we are still amazed how precise you are able to cut several layers of corugeated cardboard. The battery powered festool jigsaw was also very handy, not messing around with a cable is quite a relief.
The other teams made a good progress and we are very happy with the workspace.
It was also time for Kees and Marcel to build a new tool for the bucky lab: a rotary sander table that transforms our drillpress into a sander with dust collection.
