The precedent project, which establishes a strict logic for a series of polyhedron decking modules, inspired a similar scripted approach to a typological skate piece constructed from a set of finely detailed cuts and assemblies. The Hex Deck adopts a tactical urbanism approach to creating a multi-functional installation – detailing that skatable landscapes make for dynamic, livable landscapes.
Original physical model explorations, combining different decking types in a two-dimensional plan representation.
Detailed drawing showing the 13 different cut types to be applied to a standard 2" x 4" piece of lumber - ranging from a straight cut to miter cuts, and miter-taper combinations.
Detailed plan view of the final design, combining four basic skate typologies into two design moves: quarter-pipe and ramp; rail and stair.
