Construction and Detailing Elective



This interdisciplinary elective is designed for students who are interested in developing their detail, documentation and 1:1 model building skills by working on a real-life project with LOST IN BOOKS, a social-enterprise bookshop cafe in South West Sydney, as the client.

LOST IN BOOKS is a children's multilingual bookshop, café, safe space for women, creative learning centre, and language exchange hub. They are based in Fairfield, in south-western Sydney, one of Australia's most culturally diverse communities. LOST IN BOOKS seeks design solutions to tackle its engagement challenge. It operates in a low-socioeconomic context and seeks to influence poor transportation options for local residents and access to creative programming by increasing its outreach capacity.

During the session, students work on the design and detail of an outreach vehicle capable of meeting the changing demands of LOST IN BOOKS and the community it serves. Students prototype solutions including furniture elements in the UTS studio and fabrication workshop. Students are required to explore details through drawing and 1:1 scale model building with input from LOST IN BOOKS.

Ideally students have been inducted to the UTS fabrication workshop before the elective commences.
