Onward to the Next STOP Night Market

Once again the [R]ed[U]x Lab has been selected to participate in the Stop Night Market.  We are extremely proud to have participated in it last year and certainly look forward to once again getting an opportunity to contribute to such a great cause.  From the initial meeting at the Stop greenhouse earlier this month, all the design teams look to be extremely innovative and enthusiastic.

This year the team has decided to push the boundaries even further by finding ways to make the evening even more memorable. An interesting twist to the project this year will be the fact that the event will be held over TWO nights, June 18 & 19 with tickets going on sale on May 22nd.  Another change from last year is the fact that the organizers have brought in a different roster of restaurants for each night which means each cart design will cater to two different restaurants over the two evenings!

We will be posting up the overall design idea soon, however in the meantime some of the initial design ideas and prototyping will be showcased such as the utensil/platter prototype from Ariel and Ray... ignore the cheesy Canon in D.

A Glimpse of Best Foot Forward

Here are a few images of the final preparations and completed assembly of the Best Foot Forward project installed at the Stantec Window Gallery.  Once again, it is great to see how the [R]ed[U]x Lab team was able to bring a virtual idea to built reality in such a brief period.

Mocking Up the Leg Components

The first, second, and third year students on the [R]ed[U]x Lab Stantec Gallery team are shown here putting in the extra hours to ensure that the patterning, configuration, and assembly of the argyle leg components are all properly set before the big build at the Stantec office.

The Assembly of the Foot on Site

Naveed, Craig, and volunteers had an interesting installation session as the rather large foot components were assembled in the modest Stantec Gallery.

Folding The Leg Elements

Here are some of the first and second years putting together the elements that define the argyle sock pattern up the leg.
