IAF Submission

Yesterday, we submitted our Stage 2 exhibition proposal to the Irish Architecture Foundation. It comprises a custom made Display Table containing models of the students' Design Proposals with a monitor underneath, projecting our proposed Film onto a reflective glass screen. The film would be viewed from a Bench, designed and made by the students from recycled broken school tables and chairs. Wish us luck for Stage 2!

Week 7: Preparation for IAF Submission

It was a busy final week of Stage 1 of the Space for Learning competition. Michael, Sean W, James and Andrew came in to Strand Studio to work on their 1:50 models of their proposed Canteen and Common Room. Andrew made a 1:20 model of his Bench design that we propose to build for the exhibition if St. Paul's is chosen for Stage 2. Michael tweaked his 3D walk-through on Sketchup, which forms the backbone of our Film that takes you on a tour of these Design Proposals.
