Stompin Office


Clayton, IB and Green, RB, Stompin Office, Stompin Youth Dance Company, Launceston, pp. 1 (2003) [Acquisition]


The key object of the Stompin mobile office project was to explore digital design and manufacture. Students collectively measured functional requirements and documented psychological and aesthetic needs to expand and comprehend a basic request of a mobile office from the client. The student group was divided into teams with different responsibilities all including design and making aspects of this small but ambitious project. Countless iterations of scaled models using CNC tested design options, provided skill acquisition in CNC, as well as accuracy and efficiency in model making. The client approved the final design and budget by student presentation of a 1:10 model and spreadsheet detailing all expenditure including transportation and on site assembly. The result was a cardboard and ply 2.4m "cube", complete with shelving, desks, windows and a door. The space frame roof was a development of a design explored in a previous building technology subject. Materials: - cardboard, ply, mdf, hardwood, cloth, swivel and braked wheels and paint Special Requirements: - Knock down flat pack to fit in the back of a "ute" - All components were to fit through a standard door
