Merely to think about cities and get somewhere, one of the main things to know is what kind of problem cities pose, for all problems cannot be thought about in the same way.
Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities
Yesterday our first workshop of the year took place, under the guidance of Krzysztof. Students from both Year 1&2 made groups of 4 to create sketch models of a part of a city (teams were given a maps of different cities) during the morning session. Following that students needed to design a building/artefact which would work as part of the daily routine for their group from project 1.
By the end of the day (which didn’t take too long to come) students had created a great amount of buildings (some even made models!), and the work was pinned up for everyone to see and critique.
