Experimental Maquettes

Students were provided with strips of coloured card and tape.  They had around 20 minuets to construct a free standing object, the best results are shown above.  Before they began classes looked at the work of architect Frank Gehry (Guggenheim) in this clip:

Prints

Year 8 have been studying structures and architecture.  Students designed their own buildings, developing their initial ideas from maquettes they made at the beginning of the project and research into architects Herzog and DeMeuron, Frank Gehry and Frank Lloyd-Wright.  Students used these designs to produce collaged boards using string which could then be printed.
