A garage represents itself as a place for innovation, a starting point, to collaborate freely upon new projects without the pressures of professional practices. It however, is more than a space; it is a mentality, a method of designing, experimenting, and exploring ideas without fear of failure. Existing as a suburban icon and scaled from the automobile, the garage offers grounds for the germination of ideas apprehensive to conventional thought processes. Design studios while spatial different from a garage capture its spiritual nature. Despite studios dynamic culture, students leave behind a legacy of ideas and projects, unpublished, as they’re tucked into closets and unseen portfolios. TheGarage, a curated open source archive, aims to capture these forgotten ideas, publish them independently, while forcing unprecedented collaboration. Comprised of physical and digital entities TheGarage offers a canvas for the dispersion and expression of knowledge, ideas, and research.
