A Week Long Adventure Into The World Of An Architect
2nd - 8th Grade
You live in a home, you come to school, you shop at a market, you walk, skip and run on your sidewalk. You ride your bike under the trees, you come to a front door, you play at a park. These are all built elements that an architect must consider when designing. This week we will talk about your experiences with buildings, neighborhoods and cities, we will look at crazy buildings, other cultures and cities, and use all of this knowledge to imagine and create our own buildings and neighborhood as part of a city. We will study our own personal scale, scale of furniture and other elements around us, and then translate this into buildings as part of 4 city blocks. The work will be mostly in model form but we will create drawings to help us build the models.
Our days will be packed with model making, drawing, discussions, team work. We can’t wait!
