parking day 2011: STUDIOS Architecture with holmes culley + chris chalmers

For this year’s Parking Day event, STUDIOS Architecture, in collaboration with Holmes Culley Structural Engineers and Chris Chalmers, recycled last year’s Parking Day structure by reconfiguring reclaimed large format printer rolls as their primary building material. The cardboard tubes were held together by friction with MDF connectors which were CNC milled for maximum material efficiency.

The concept for this year’s Parking Day installation was an extruded parking space with a void carved out in the shape of a car, creating a usable public space. Design for the installation was developed using Rhino software with the grasshopper plug-in, a parametric modeling tool, which aided in construction of the final piece. All CNC fabrication was done at TechShop, a community-oriented workshop open privately to the public. No fasteners or adhesive were used in this installation, allowing for quick assembly, easy recycling, and minimum waste.
