In conjunction with three other group members, Jai Kanodia, Matt Radican, and Aditi Thota, we created a modular vertical garden. Each of the cube-like modules is comprised of four MDF cutouts and four connection components, all created using a CNC router and engineered to take advantage of the machine and waste as little material as possible, while creating a highly variable and extremely stable system. The design of the modules was thought of from a practical construction standpoints as well as a functional scale standpoint. Each the small scale singular, medium scale few, and large scale many were considered.
