Sears think[box] spotlight
Frostbites Cafe pop-up restaurant was an experiment in modular dwelling construction for difficult terrain. Hollow plywood arches were fabricated using the ShopBot, and a novel scheme was employed to attach a canvas covering. Thanks to a permit through the Cleveland Metroparks, this structure was installed 1/4 mile north of Edgewater Beach Park on Lake Erie ice measuring 24 inches thick. A large team of 52 volunteers worked to build the structure and put on the event, which included free food and drink from the purveyors of The Root Cafe and Now That's Class. Over 400 visitors enjoyed Frostbites Cafe during the one-day installation on March 8, 2015.
