Subway Sketch

Subway SketchRethinking the design a bit after seeing the real polycarbonate multiwall again. It’s going to be hard to create holes in the polycarbonate, because of the vertical ribbing (which is what makes it so strong). It’s probably better to redesign the structural system so that the table panels can lay across lateral supports (rather than be held up by verticals passing through the table panels). Another benefit to redesigning the structural system this way is that everything should be a bit more stable and balanced, because the verticals are being cross-braced by lateral connections. Also, thinking further about the hinged connections between the table panels, and how to create a flexible joint that will not structurally compromise the individual panels. We’ll make some more small models soon to test these ideas and post them up.
