Building the End of The Pier Show: Day Four.

We have to say a huge thanks to the staff at Newhaven Fort for allowing students and staff a unique space in which to build the components for our 2018 School of Architecture and Design Graduate Show which this year will be on the RIBA Stirling Prize winning Hastings Pier. The space we have been granted access to, the Grand Magazine, has plenty of storage space and two main vaulted rooms. So close enough together to move components from one to the other for manufacture, but separated well enough to allow us to work with metal and wood at the same time.

Day four of the build and all is going well, secret concoctions to clean the oil off the steel before the timber inserts are fitted ready to receive the plywood cladding. Today’s production line went smoothly and we completed 25% of the wall panels. So far so good.
