Last Summer, Allen Hasbun participated in a Design Thinking: Architecture Camp at Moonlighter Makerspace. Their client, The Miami Book Fair, wanted a solution that would help promote literature in many communities. Out of the half dozen proposals, Allen's was selected to be built full scale. He then spent the next month refining his design and building it at Moonlighter Makerspace. Using layers of CNC-cut plywood and finished in a marine varnish, the design provides 5 different kinds of seating and 3 areas to store books. It will be travelling throughout South Florida, bringing free books to lots of people.
Allen is a 9-year old maker, learning and creating at Moonlighter Makerspace. An avid fan of 3D printing, Allen has worked with TinkerCad, littleBits, Illustrator, makerbots, and laser cutters.
