How to hack a z-rack

An icon from the earliest days at the d.school, the “z-rack” is a mindful hack that has literally transformed the way we work.¬† Scott Doorley and George Kembel originally modified garment racks to create inexpensive (and plentiful) dry-erase surfaces to facilitate and capture the process of being visual with ideas. The z-racks unintentionally became excellent tools for partitioning and creating team spaces.¬†They have become core tools in creating our teaching landscape.

Check out this guide to how you can create them for your own space.
