Abstract/Summary The event celebrates design and highlights how urban intervention can create vibrant laneways. It is part of an overall urban strategy for inner-city Brisbane to ‘activate’ Fish Lane while allowing Final year students to publicly showcase their design ingenuity and capability. Fish Lane Follies investigates both the physical construction of the prototype structures and their role as urban activators in promoting public activity. By siting these structures in the built environment we promote real public engagement and response to these experimental forms. The students did research into construction techniques using plywood without any stud framing. The benefitt of using plywood was the layers created by the cross directional grain. Students introduced three dimensional geometry concepts to the plywood through processes or folding, cupping and bending, in order to gain inherent stiffness and strength in the plywood.
