"Bofill and his team employed two equations that would lead to the volumetric design of Kafka Castle. The first equation generated the number of room capsules that plug into the stair towers. While the second equation determined the height of each spiral progression around the stair towers."

And the similar Habitat 67.

I built my dining table this weekend, and decided I should document (poorly photograph) the current state of my apartment.

I’m pretty happy with the table. I kind of regret painting the stripe down the middle late last night, but I think I might either stencil some design in black on top of it or try wheatpasting something to it.

I also cut the plywood shelves to go across the ladder rungs today. I need to sand and I’m thinking paint them white, and also add strips so they’ll sit level.

I also want to cut shelves for the fireplace/alcove, I cut a plywood section to put at the top of it that I can pound in nails to hang tools on,

The wardrobe I made a couple of weeks ago has not fallen down yet. I’d still like to make a kitchen cart and some day a media console. I’d been holding off on hanging art up until the furniture arrangement felt more stable, I think it is now time.

I tried to do too much today, but I’m really enjoying working on this stuff.

I framed my Shigeto album cover poster today. Screwed up one of the cuts but it turned out OK.

At Fast Forward Labs we’re thoughtful about the kind of work space we want to spend our time in. We decided that we preferred a shared large table instead of individual desks, to make it easier to collaborate and offer the flexibility to spread out when necessary, and to allow space for other people to drop in and work with us.

We also love to build things, and find an hour of working with our hands to be a welcome respite from hours of math, programming, reading, and writing, so we decided to build it ourselves!

Our table construction project was designed and led by Micha, and it came out beautifully. The photos here document the design and build process.

This is the table I do work on now, though right now I am in the back on the picnic one.
