Ad-Hoc Urbanism

FAT’s scheme amplifies the decorative and expressive potential of off-site panel technology through the hybridisation of digital fabrication techniques offering a structural system with a softer and more informal quality that can add dynamism and visual interest to the city.  The delivered timber panel system (pre-assembled or ‘flat packed’) can be assembled into any shape or form complex interlinked volumes and consists of a range of additional elements such as decorative parapets, balconies, bays and window shapes encouraging set-backs, projections and other forms of modelling offering a huge variety of spatial and stylistic expression.   The (DIY-orientated) system promotes the use of dry joints & non-specialist skills allowing for smaller scale, more local modifications to occur activating areas of unused, vacant and currently inaccessible urban spaces.
