As the builders of project, the main challenge was the time line. To avoid interfering with school working schedule, we had to build the entire wall and clean up the space in one weekend; without access to the workshop. As all the calculations were theoretical, during the assembly dozens of adjustments were made in place making the process difficult. The by-product of these challenges was a number of creative assembly methods that we came up with. The initial promise of the project was to be as “weak” as possible to avoid competing with the art being displayed on it. It has taken 3” of the room’s space, but can display heavy models with length of up to 6 ft. Designed for maximum flexibility of display, it can be used all as pin-up surface or as a wild combination of 2D and 3D pieces. All dimensions are results of the study of ergonomics and dynamics of review culture in the school. Panels are very fast and easy to set up helping the fast pace of reviews with minimal interruptions.
