“A few hot glue gun blisters and X-Acto knife cuts were a small price to pay to share in Aurora Picture Show’s temporary backyard theater crowdsourced design process.”

”Two people grabbing two-by-fours and saws and working together, there’s a different kind of communication that happens.”

I was reviewing the the UBT 1st model yesterday with the thought of how can this be translated into a real space with only a few days to build. What will change? What worked? What did not? How much material will it need. How much should I plan out before the 2nd Think Tank in Texas?
Then, at some point I decided to add a quick projection booth/ small room just to make a accurate guess at materials.
That comes to around 6 2x4x10s, 18 2x4x8, 4 sheets of 4x8 plywood, and a roll of tyvek.
