A retractable canopy for the external play area. The students will be developing a membrane that can create shelter from the rain but will allow natural light through the fabric ! Excited to see the results!

A concept model for furniture that can be folded and stored within the walls !! The students will continue developing this idea by adding bigger size furniture for adults and experimenting more with the use of colour and materiality.

Awesome section and axo of a leveled playground! The students will make a sectional model at 1-20 and a refined axo for final presentation. Great work!

Very cool idea for a Beehive storage shelf! This group will explore the different possibilities of this concept through a physical model!

An awesome concept sketch of an external seating space for the pop-up cafe! Students will incorporate a canopy to protect people from the sun and the rain, and it will also include the 'playful levels' that they used for the sitting area. This will give the cafe space an awesome look and identity!

A very cool perspective of hexagonal storage that drops from the ceiling! Each hexagon contains chairs and furniture that can be kept away from the open space when unused.

Awesome concept sketches of an adaptable peace of furniture ! For the final presentation students will develop a booklet with assembling instructions! Excited to see the final result !

First day! We started the event by presenting the project and what we expected for the students to produce. We showed them photos of previous work and explained the schedule for the two weeks.

Third day: Another group is explaining their idea of maximizing floor space by hiding chairs and storage in the unused attic space!
Posted 24 Mar 2017 13:37
Third day: To explore their concepts the students used larger versions of the three-sided boxes that were used for the modelling game. This allowed them to quickly give form to their concepts and explain it to the rest of the group. This group modelled their pop-up cafe idea!

Third day: Following the site visit, the students were split into groups and chose themes to work with! After exploring their initial concepts they presented in front of all of us for feedback and ideas..

Site Visit to the Beehive Cringle Park Community Hub, which included a quick brief overview of the needs of property from Pheobe Cross, who runs the community hub.

Modelling Game - The students developed ideas of form based on several words, including 'light and heavy', 'play', 'honey' . This produced a range of outcomes following each students interpretation. The first and second year students may begin to use these abstract ideas and forms as a starting point for the beehive project.

This mornings Modelling Game in progress. For this model the student was developing form the word 'play'.
