Great to be back! Here are some pictures of our pin-up. Students have 5 more days to go before their interim portfolio submission and seven days before submitting their Burning Man and Wikihouse proposals. Then we will move on to brief03: Temple. Very excited about the projects! Thank you very much to Nick Ierodiaconou and Alastair Parvin creators of the Wikihouse from 00:/ Architects for their very insightful comments.
The academic year is over for DS10! Thank you everyone for the great enthusiasm that you have put in our unit and the wonderfully creative work which you have produced all year long. We are looking forward to learning more with you next year as well as pursuing our research agenda on a “post-crisis” society and a self-reliant, digitally and physically informed Architecture.
Below are couple pictures from our final crit and the end of year show. See you next year!
Below is a slideshow of our first Pin-Up (6th October 2011). Students mainly looked at two experiments from either Frei Otto or Buckminster Fuller in both digital and analogue ways. Next step: Re-visiting these experiments with your own techinques and ideas, keep up the good work DS10 !
