Architecture & Model Making for Teens and UP

IMG_9497 IMG_9495 IMG_9494 IMG_9482 IMG_9476 IMG_9504

Teens and the ‘young at art’ will learn some of the basic hands-on design studio skills for architecture. By collaborating with other students we will make a “city of the future”.  Students will sketch a plan, then construct their own building using glue-gun and foamcore, and place it in a streetscape with other buildings to be photographed. With an emphasis on fun and fantasy we will create a whimsical , imaginative futuristic Metropolis (like the 1927 classic movie – google Youtube). This intensive is ideal for students looking to build a portfolio for studies in architecture, urban design, animation or set design, and many other design occupations.

 

Instructor: Tony O’Regan, Master’s Degree Environmental Design (Architecture Specialty) and lots of other cool stuff.

The last two days work on a finished painting and learn about colour theory, mixing and application. Perfect for anyone wanting to sketch and paint travel scenes. Suitable for students with some experience, the step-step demonstrations are backed up by on line videos for home practice.

LEARN TO BUILD AN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN “SKETCH MODEL”

A TOWER HANDOUT 1A STUDENT SAMPLES

This is a “sketch model”. The purpose is to be able to build and design at the same time in a relatively quick, sculptural way, moving between sketches and modeling. You design very different things when you build a physical model during the design process vs. drawings or even computer modeling. This was done by a young student under direction in approx 12 hours, with no absolutely no prior experience. This one is fairly basic. There are much more elaborate and exploratory examples in other posts. Yes, computers are wonderful, but there is nothing like knowing some procedures for a physical model.  We do a version of this model in Building Architectural Models and Maquettes at Emily Carr. Basic plan provided – exploration and creative changes encouraged. Great for adding to your design skill inventory and for Architectural portfolios.

Next session is Oct 16 to Dec 11. A series of 8 Sunday afternoons,  Fall 2016 (no class on holiday weekend Nov 13. Call (604)844-3800.

This studio course introduces you to architectural design sketch-modeling from preliminary drawings.  (Several student examples pictured above).  Each person modifies and adapts the basic design in their own creative direction. Through exercises and projects you will learn to read design drawings and build foam core models for architecture, interiors, landscape design or industrial design applications.

We first ‘build’ a site model and then erect a lowrise & highrise model, clad and detail it, including penthouse & deck-scape. We primarily use hot gluegun and foamcore with flexible plastic for windows. This is a quick, sculptural  technique often used in design schools and offices. The point of it is to use the modeling process as a design method, working back and forth between drawing and model. We design different things when we use a model. The model can be rough and ready or refined and make great portfolio photos. Also, if you learn this method BEFORE you go to design school, you get to sleep nights while others toil.  June 11, 2016 caqll Emily Carr Continuing Education to register (604)844-3800) – don’t delay!

CEID 223 SU01: Architectural Modeling

 Contact Emily Carr Continuing Studies (604) 844-3800 to reg. – open to all – 

My fun and well-structured studio course this Fall introduces you to 3D architectural modeling as a design method. Through exercises and projects you will  learn to read design drawings and build foam core models for architecture, interiors, landscape design, set design or industrial design applications. Emphasis is on quick-sketch modelbuilding techniques, an important process for creating. developing and refining a design. Students often use photos of the finished models created in this course (see above) for strong portfolio submissions to architecture schools which often require evidence of 3d work. Learn strategies for preparing an effective portfolio. (see the Architecture School Portfolio Category at right column.)
