Architecture Powerlifting
Workshop by Gregory M Anto

A gravity-defying workshop on structural design. On day one, students were introduced to the idea of powerlifting through the body and then moved on to understand gravity and structural design. They worked in two groups to design a structure for 750mm with mount board as the material; the aim was to design it for 50-60kgs. Both designs were tested on the final day. The students enjoyed the whole process, as it also defied the idea of studying structural design in the ‘boring’ classroom format.
