DESCRIPTION

MetroLAB studios are typically taught on-site where the projects are located within the city. There are great benefits to having material and fabrication tools available on-site so that students and local community members can collaborate within their own neighborhood. As a result of funding from the Betz family, the MetroLAB Mobile Workshop studio was created to explore how to create an on-site trailer for milling and fabricating.

After exploring existing off-the-shelf and unique trailers, the studio developed an aluminum system that allows for maximum flexibility. Through extensive material exploration and testing, the students adopted existing systems to create an unfolding, flexible, mobile workshop.
