Participants – Chair Projects – University of Waterloo

Published :    By : JeremyV      Cat :    Comments : 0

The project requires the design, construction and structural analysis of a folding or take-apart wood chair.  Course assignments guide the project through the steps of research, conceptualization, design development, construction, review and presentation, comprehensive structural analysis of the chair in its different positions, and complete documentation of the process in a booklet.  Students are encouraged to select a client who inspires them, and to approach the design with attention to the Vitruvian goals of firmness, commodity and delight –emphasis on delight!
