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.
