The Graf Shack, was conceived as a potential answer to the perceived societal issue of graffiti art. Its main purpose is to provide a space where street artists can practice their art form, in a legal, constructive environment, whilst promoting graffiti positively, as a creative outlet. It would also provide a creative space for those who would simply like to express themselves, whether they are teenagers, children, or adults. The Street Studio was designed based on information collected from the graffiti art community. We used this to create specifications that influenced our design decisions. For example, large surfaces, ventilation, and an area to relax. The structure would be constructed out of recycled timber framing, with truss supports, recycled timber sheeting exterior, and the use of other recycled materials such as corrugated plastic, canvasing, foam, and fabric. This pop-up Street Studio is the physical representation of the graffiti art community; creative, challenging, and interactive.
