Framing Camp 2004. Pasadena City College

Pasadena City College
Spring 2004

This is a design/ build class that I taught at PCC to 24 students working in groups of 3. Each group was expected to design a segment of a larger, linear structure. Each segment had to have a wall, a floor, a roof and a window opening.

I asked students to design their segments in a way that the entire structure would read as a single entity. Neighboring teams had to figure out a way of ‘‘stitching’’ the segments together in a seamless way.

The entire structure was built according to standard framing practice, using full-scale construction details.

The work was published in the Journal of Architectural Education in Nov '06 and later in a book by Lukas Freireiss called SPACECRAFT.
