Pool Noodle Parametrics

This workshop explored the use of pool noodles to construct a social seating landscape for Clapton Girls’ Academy.

Students spent the morning learning about unconventional public seating: imaginative landscapes that encourage social interaction and form an alternative to more familiar varieties of seating such as park benches. Each student began by constructing repeating modules from cable ties, which were then connected together to form the base grid for a seating landscape. They spent the afternoon arranging and securing the pool noodles into the grid they had constructed, forming a new social seating landscape for their playground.
