Modular Kayak Storage Rack

ARMATURE FOR ROWING BOATS

Academic Year

Spring semester of 2018

Criteria

An investigation exploring the scale, movement, function and materiality of small recreational boats (i.e. rowing sculls/shells, kayaks, and canoes) and the physical processes of moving from storage to the water and back.

Description

A corridor down the spine of the armature creates space for airflow, oar storage and accessibility from both sides of the boat. Timber wood is the primary material choice as it retains excess moisture from the boats. Detachable armature pieces allow for the flexibility of storing different sizes and shaped boats. Roof panels add structural rigidity and filtered light over the armature.
