Over the course of the two weeks, this will enable you to design and construct some simple structures. Consideration of the relationship to the human body, material and physical presence will feature.

When you have completed your structures, you will photograph them in preparation for the final exhibition.

Week 1:

You will be introduced to a range of creative processes and techniques to help you develop your design thinking. Combining drawing, photography and basic 3D assembly, you will explore scaled ideas for a simple structure in response to a particular design challenge.

By the end the first few days you will have created a range of interior architecture and design test explorations to help define your project direction.

Towards the end of week one you will move up in scale to start testing the detail of component parts of your design, including its purpose, stability, material, connection junctions, texture, colour, pattern, communication and expression.  You will continue to develop basic skills to support your project process, notably basic hand build assembly.

At the end of week one you will have created a range of interior architecture and design test explorations to help define your project direction.

Week 2:

You will move up in scale to start testing the detail of component parts of your design, including its purpose, stability, material, connection junctions, texture, colour, pattern, communication and expression. You will continue to develop basic skills to support your project process, notably basic hand-build assembly.

By the end of week two you will have created a series of detail component studies to help inform your developing project direction.
