Recently we went on site as a team altogether to see how our ideas felt at full scale. This involved some lightweight wood posts to imitate the planned structure to be built above the crow’s nest, and some shovel-drawn lines in the dirt to mock up dimensions of our ground plane changes. In the above photo you can see where we plan to have a rain garden and a path running through the middle of it. Our dimensions ended up not being too far off but now we have an experience in our mind to reference as we further develop our ideas. Mocking up the design also clearly showed us places in the design we had not given much thought. If only we had picked a drier day! Also, below you can see our experiments with mechanical kinetic play elements that may be implemented in tandem with the structure.
