SMALL STUDIO \ FOLDING FARM*
student sustainable farm, urbana, illinois \\ spring 2012 \ partnered with charles huss, megan calnon, fadi salem, jordan buckner
A design studio project with professor Jeff Poss (http://uiucsmallstudio.com/). The studio began by partnering with the Student Sustainable Farm to explore vegetable displays for the campus's weekly market (http://thefarm.illinois.edu/). Upon completion, my team's project was selected to further design and complete the fabrication. Funding allowed us to fully develop our bike powered vegetable cart and custom fold-out display. The "Folding Farm" gave the SSF the opportunity to sustainably transport their produce to campus and the local farmer's market.
Charles Huss and I took on the design of the custom cart frame, moving metal parts and kick stand, as well as acquiring the bike, tires, and custom bike hitch along with Meagan Calnon who headed up the design and fabrication of the custom wooden baskets that unfold to display the produce.
