BIG SHED is the first in a series of buildings being constructed at Hooke Park as part of the Architectural Association School of Architecture design and make program.
BIG SHED designed by student at the time Nozomi Nakabayashi had to be an adaptable structure which could accommodate the construction of future buildings components.
The main structure is made up of local larch roundwood poles with steel flitch plates joining them to make up a series of trusses which then pre-fabricated cedar clad panels are joined.
The main contractor was Charley Brentnall of International Timber Conservation, Design, Construction & Consultancy. He headed up a team of about ten professionals which Jack was part of and there were the same amount of summer build volunteer students which we worked with for the first two months of construction.
