Year 1 students have undertaken a project to respond to extreme environments with demountable structure proposals. The students have been introduced to Future Systems, Archigram, Leonidov etc etc to inspire! Here we showcase some great examples of the results! Very impressive stuff!
Year 1 students have been working hard again in the workshop, carving out their casts to prepare in exploring them as architectural spaces through themes such as light, scale, colour and composition. The workshop is a great facility for the architecture students and staff. We have all the equipment students need to work with a multitude of materials. Traditional timber working saws, sanders and cnc equipment, alongside high tech laser cutters and 3D printers to name just a few! We also have a fantastic casting suite as well as print making facilities and the Maker Lab situated in the East wing of the architecture and design building. Here are some pictures of the workshop and work in progress!
Last week Year 2 Architecture students worked as teams for our first design charrette MAKE+. The brief was to design a transportable pavilion for the campus. We are aiming to prototype and build with students moving forwards! The winners, Team 6 were Edward Buttifant, Zujia Zhao, Lauren Gabbitas, George Gardner, Ashlea Mason, Ellie Stinson, Tom Brunyard. Everybody involved did a fantastic job and we were very impressed by the high level work and really importantly also impressed by the positive and productive team work!
