Essaying the fabpod

An improvised experimental collaborative account of the uncertain cultural life and futures of the fabpod, as of August 21, 2014.

The associated ibook (i.e. Apple only) is available for download.


How might the affordances of the essay as a writing practice be brought to bear within a workshop framework of collaborative improvisation, in response to an urban architectural model structure? This is the question that motivated this experiment, which took place in 2014 in Melbourne, in and around an innovative architectural design artefact, the Fabpod (RMIT 2012).
