Make City

Final project\Mack suprastudio\UCLA

Instructors: Mark Mack, Steve Lee

Based on ARCHIGRAM’s instant city, Make city is a temporary traveling urban festival. It arrives in battery operated helicopters, sets up, teaches the community sustainable practices through workshops along with other festival activities and leaves behind a hydroponic tower for the benefit of the community. Creating instant green cities along the way, make city transforms suburbs into centres for collaboration and growth, slowly expanding to the cities over many years. 

Make city has two major building blocks that are pre-fabricated and assembled on site: 

3D-PRINTED MODULES assembled by robots on site.  

BAMBOO MODULES assembled by volocopters on site 

The ggregation of 3D printed units was demonstrated using robotic simulation, with the TACO KUKA grasshopper plugin. (shown in the video)

Proposed renovation for a family restaurant\Freelance project

Team: Manojna Acharya, Samskruti Harish

An old restaurant in Bangalore needed a face-lift. The proposal brought into the restaurant, a unique industrial flavor with distressed plaster finish for the walls, industrial chairs, benches and lamps. The existing seating arrangement was done away with and a new more open layout was proposed. Inspired by Indian street food, a street food corner was proposed that was colorful and vibrant. The entire back wall of the restaurant was replaced with a glass facade and wooden large wooden louvers which let in a huge amount of light into the space. New large openings would be punctured into the walls. The restaurant also featured a living green wall and a colored glass louvered partition wall at the entrance which added vibrancy to the space and invited guests from the streets.
