Hornberger + Worstell / Build Pods, Designer
San Francisco, CA
Build Pods is the leading US producer of prefabricated building pods for multi-story construction. In order to clearly communicate the concept and installation process, I helped create a 63-page design manual under the supervision of an architect and Jack Worstell at Hornberger + Worstell (the firm collaborated with Build Pods to realize the project). The process included research, meetings with consultants, drawing a set of details and illustrations, layout design, and 3d modeling.
When the project began, the design of the typical pod was not yet finalized. I was therefore able to observe the design proceed through many iterations and gain insight into how and why the design changed over time. I learned about how structural, MEP, acoustical, durability, and cost concerns were balanced all while carefully coordinating how the Pod would be installed during the construction process.
