The first year design faculty has been running a spring semester shop project for many years: Scott Smith has influenced this work as Shop Director since 1985. The examples documented in this paper are a cross section including two examples from the I980's and several more recent examples from the last ten years. The primary objective of this paper is to document the success and variety of this work and consider the factors impacting its variation, how the particulars of the assignment contribute more or less to the project objectives, and provide some background context for other scholars who may consider applying similar projects in the foundation design studios.
