Year 1 Architecture

Working in groups students learn about the role of abstraction in the design and communication process and investigate the methods of contemporary design and representation through a study of the work of contemporary artists. The City of Aberdeen provides the vehicle for study for this project and each group is given a place or space to study which allows students to investigate the nature and character of the place. Students then create an abstract model which demonstrates the atmospheric quality of the place.
