Incite is designing a new restaurant and today, in the office, we are constructing mock ups of blackboards on two different pulley systems. These mock ups are helping us through design development of the movable system. We are testing the materials and mechanics that will allow the blackboards to move up and down as required by the users. Creating scaled mock ups allows us to bring sketch designs to reality by testing the physics and construction methods of a design. Although not exact replicas of the system to be used, the mock ups help to solve design dilemmas before full scale construction begins. Blackboards and other unique elements will be integrated into the design of the developing restaurant in Medford, MA. Stay tuned for updates on Incite’s design and construction progress. Now…to patch the office back up!
