TransActing Stalls working group workshop with public works on 2nd June, 10am -5pm PARADE Ground, Chelsea College of Arts.
Thanks to Helen for supplying a PDF of Enzo Mari's designs - autoprogettazione

Gleaning resources
We scavenged some materials

We were invited to bring possible (Mari inspired?) stall or seating typologies. Here's a selection.

We looked at, and discussed them before deciding to go to the Parade Ground and start making a trestle/saw dog, and a Mari-inspired table frame, from skipped materials.
This would give us a sense of what's possible in the time we have, the materials at our disposal, and our competences.

The Mari truss table was very simple to make, from scrap materials, easy to self-organise fabricating processes around, and strong and stable!
None of the Chelsea battery tools worked well, and the saw was blunt.

Andreas/PublicWorks left with the intention of developing some typologies before Stall workshop2 with our gleaned knowledge.
