Team 1: Midterm 2

Our stage is located in Telluride, Colorado, specifically designed for the Telluride Jazz Festival. However, there are a multitude of other festivals that occur in Telluride between May and October that the stage will also be of use for.

The plan, section, and elevation of this stage demonstrates the stage within its context and gives an idea of the small, intimate scale of the space.

Illustrated below is a basic instruction manual of the steps and processes that would be required for the construction of this stage. Additionally, pre-fabrication and transportation of the components is included to gain a sense of the practicality of assembly and disassembly demonstrated in the design.

A half-scale prototype of a section of the portal is displayed to show the type of connection (steel knife plate and bolts/nuts) that will be used in construction. The completion of this model allowed us to explore the feasibility and constructability of our design.

The cross-panel design is heavily based on CNC’ed plywood panels. Therefore, there is the potential for a large amount of waste in this design project. To counteract this unnecessary waste, we have designed seating from the CNC cut-outs.
Lastly, we have tested the structural integrity of our stage design within a Karamba analysis. According to these analysis’, the structure will be able to withstand strong winds (~50 mph) and is, therefore, structurally sufficient.
