Design Development Final Thoughts

The development at this point to create a platform that has multiple uses depending on the configuration has uncovered several interesting possiblities. Depending on the tide levels, the stairs can either be a cascading steps that flow into the water, or a amphitheatre with a stage on the non-moving platform. Modelling will begin to see how this will work in layers in 3D with a furthur progress report ready by tuesday.

These 2 were an earlier permutation on how the system would work mechanically and in no way is evident of how the final form will look like.
Both are meant to be passive kinetic structures

  1. Refine most recent design to reflect awareness of steel component design as kit of parts rather than monolithic, stylized elements.
