Offshore: House Boats and Other Floating Structures
Sat, Oct 3 from 10am - 1pm
Hosted by: Integrus Architecture
Program Type: Hands On Workshop
When we think of buildings we think of permanent structures built to the ground, but what if we could create architecture without this limitation? A building offshore can face any direction, be relocated to beautiful places, have interesting and fun features all while meeting the needs of an adequate building. In this workshop we will look at house boats and other floating structures. We will discuss the difficulties and opportunities of creating space over the water. Finally, we will design and test a floating structure.
Required materials for all workshops include:
- access to Zoom (via a computer, tablet, or iphone)
- a surface to work on
- markers, crayons, colored pencils
