What is Rapid type?

Rapid type is a design/build studio based on a grant from Mitsubishi to explore potential design uses and assembly techniques that are specific to using Alpolic. Research in marketing and deployment strategies of prefabricated architecture guided our approach to develop a semi-mobile food service unit as a means to test the limits of Alpolic.

Team Bent – Prototyping

The class was challenged with the task of creating full scale prototypes of possible connection details.  This would give us an understanding of assembly, process, and aesthetic understanding.  Our team focused on bent strategy that could integrate with lighting and shear wall construction. (TP)
