PREFAB EXPO - Puke Ariki Museum, NZ

Click-Raft has been selected for a special Prefab Exhibition to be held at the Puke Ariki Museum in New Plymouth (home town of Len Lye). Being organised by PrefabNZ (Pamela Bell) with Victoria University School of Architecture (Mark Southcombe) and Puke Ariki (Gerard Beckingsale) is based on the very successful 'home delivery' Expo at the Museum of Modern Art in New York exploring the latest developments in fabrication design - see
The Project Team includes Jaap Dankert Alistair Scott & Chris Moller, fabrication and assembly by Stanley Modular (Gary Caulfield) , plywood generously supplied by Plytech (Craig Floyd), and support from Paul Mather and his students at Weltec Petone. A full scale Type 02 will be assembled in the Museum, along with click-raft workshops in click-weave fabrication and assembly techniques at 1:10 -  to enable kids of all ages to play and explore this new approach to architecture

Click-Raft website - is the newly launched website address - currently the focus is on the TYPE02 range with three offerings currently available - the Mini 10m2 unit (02B-M01), Basic 30m2 (02B-P01), and Extended 30m2 (02B-L01).

Next up will be the larger TYPE03 Business/Retail structures - see previous post below.

Click-Raft TYPE03 - Business/Retail Unit Launch

This week was the BuildNZ/Designex show in Auckland, along with PrefabNZ Event - so a perfect moment to launch the new TYPE03 Click-Raft. Together with Stanley Modular, the Click-Raft Team have been super busy putting together a proposal for a temporary 200m2 retail unit for Queens wharf. The project can be inexpensively and quickly cnc machined in the Stanley Matamata factory then delivered as a flatpack to site for rapid assembly....
.... especially for those last minute projects that need to be delivered "just in time" !
