Student Work: the set up

Auckland Architecture Student Project - FifthI’ve become pretty attached to this project after following this gang of smart young architecture students and their process from conception, design, problem solving, model making and finally full scale set up! (click here to get the background on what I am talking about!)
Last Friday they had access to the cavernous and white Flying Fish Studio where for the first time they could assemble the final product of months of work. I was LOVING it!!! Throughout the day they had boyfriends, family and friends dropping by to help and have a turn arranging the poles in whatever way they wanted.

The pictures show the scope of their installation – which from today until Sunday the 13th will be available for the public to visit and interact with at the “Here Now: re imagining New Lynn” event as part of the the Auckland Heritage Festival. The team went to a HUGE amount of effort and kudos to their sponsors for supporting their ambitious idea. Film maker Ben Carter donated his time to film the set up and the result is awesome – definitely a good watch if you are wondering what this whole project equals when humans are involved!
