The project intertwines custom elements with generic ones and images with budget materials to provide a set of parts that come together to form a gym.
– Laida Aguirre
A multidisciplinary design studio called Stock-a-Studio has created a temporary gym in a shopfront that can be easily assembled, disassembled, customised and reassembled using a variety of low budget materials.

The installation, called [ a kit of these some parts ] x budget gym ], is aimed at encouraging assembly rather than construction and refinishing rather than remanufacturing.

Hosted at LA's Materials & Applications – a non-profit organisation that seeks to build a public culture of experimental architecture – it co-opts the temporary event architecture of tents, gazebos and booths.

Laida Aguirre, director of Stock-a-Studio, explains: "Poles, panels, tension straps, and tarps complete otherwise generic structural frames. The project intertwines custom elements with generic ones and images with budget materials to provide a set of parts that come together to form a gym."

The gym is built from a kit that includes a structural steel system, foam padding, hold-downs, tape, ratchet straps, shims, dunnage bags, sandbags and vacuum-formed panels.

The versatility of the materials means it could be reassembled as anything from furniture to a workstation to a stage set.

The project is running from October 19th to January 5th and will host weight-lifting, trainer-led workouts and meetups for hiking and biking groups. Members of the public can also book sessions at the gym.
