Hello everyone, here are couple pictures from our last tutorial showing some of the best future cities that our students are currently working on in response to the Brief03:FutureCities.
From an open-source green city living in symbiosis with the Amazonian forest to a terra-forming city on Mars made from 3d printing robots carrying giant Fresnel lenses all the way to a rent-for-advertisement growing infrastructure covered with LED screens – we are look forward to discovering with you the cities of tomorrow from our wonderful and creative DS10 students next Thursday at the Interim Crit.
We just finished the interim portfolio review, students submitted their work so far in the form of a beautiful portfolio. We asked for 25 digital pages, Two beautiful A2+ prints, a working portfolio and an abstract. Here are some of the most complete portfolios we’ve seen:
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 !
