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!
Usually we say that the building weeks starts with International Plywood our supplier of Plywood. This time they arrived on day two and not the week before, but even better they also brought the sun… after a rainy morning the beloved red truck appears and John van Dijk managed to get the lorry in the tight spot without any damage and unloaded our building material with his handy forklift. Its always nice to see the students eyes wide open when they figured out that this delivery is actually for them.
After a quick unload underneath a blue sky the students directly started with their projects. Everything went smoothly. The cardboard group already got a couple of profiles from our storage place and were busy in the model hall.
