Our meeting with Julia and Renata at Harland Cafe allowed us to see our progress so far. A lot had been done in the past few days, even including an alternative temporary secondary glazing option. This had been produced alongside the see-saw sawdust briquette maker. The work on the first option was also progressing well.
The frame is complete!
A lot of fun was had demonstrating how the see-saw sawdust squisher would work, the next step was to test it. We concluded our efforts so far with a group meal of Vietnamese food on London Road, preparing for plenty more hard work to come!
While making of the first option for the temporary secondary glazing continued in the George Porter workshop, other group members were continuing work on the Artists ‘pod’ ideas. Here are some of the initial sketches:
We annotated these plans of Portland Works during a previous group meeting to familiarise ourselves with the individual rooms and what processes occurred in these spaces.
Although these may be a little difficult to read from one angle, they have certainly been very helpful during our group meetings in allowing us to understand the spaces we are focusing on and the uses of energy around the site.
To give a better idea of how and where it would be applied, we produced the following plans and drawings:
These drawings looked at how we would create the glazing. Initially we would have used the steel strips, but, after our discovery in the previous post, we then decided to source other material for this part of the system.
