Nuclear Competition Entry

Final BoardEntry to Arch Out Loud’s Nuclear competition, which was to design a marker system that would deter people from entering a nuclear waste disposal plant in New Mexico for 10,000 years

First Year Group Design Project


This project involved designing a structure to span a site on campus. We chose to split our span into a cantilever and beam.



The original idea took precedents from a folding camping stool, combining the beam and cantilever into one entire folding structure. But this was subject to torsion and instability.


The structure then became a separate beam and cantilever, with the cantilever sitting on top of the beam and being weighted at one end.

From there we altered the distribution of the perforations on the structure to reflect the distribution on shear, and adopted a method of lasercutting and folding cardboard sections to form the structure.


Then (like the nerd I am) I continued to refine the structure once the project had finished.

Deer Bridge

Not sure where this idea came from really, I think it’s from seeing the big skeletons of giant Irish elk in the Dublin natural history museum as a kid and it all came back to me when I was thinking of ideas for structures
