Introduction to Modernism | Day 1

What a way to kick-off our 2019 events, with enthusiastic participants and coordinators.
We started off with a brief introduction on Modernism and split our self-up into different teams to initiate with an icebreaker, which had many good attempts , but in the end , there was only one winner.

Once again, well done to Group 3 as they’ve created some really good structures out of spaghettis and marshmallows.

This afternoon, we’ll be based outdoor, as we’re tracking down Manchester to sketch and take pictures of the Modernist building near by the Uni. We’ll be keeping an eye out to the similarities that these building share in common and discuss them in our session plan tomorrow. Sketches are key as they’ll communicate more than words.

Sketch modelling

Will demonstrate how to problem solving through modelling making. This is a particularly useful
tool to explore the potentials of a design as well as possibilities of having different solutions
through a physical model.

Sketching.

Will demonstrate how to communicate initial ideas through sketching creating design outlines. Additionally, this is a powerful process to use because it always helps discover the best ideas and
solutions to a design problem, and can be quick way to simplify a complex design concepts
without hashing out the details.

Technical drawings
Will demonstrate the process of producing drawings for proposal or design - detailing structural
elements and connections. This is a useful tool to communicate the technical details of a project
in a common format both pragmatic and conceptual

What is Modernist Architecture?
Modernism emerged early-20th century through social and technological change. Function, rational use of material, and the elimination of ornamental decoration made way for structural innovation. Modernism is the celebration of technology, machine and automation; developing across all artistic fields.
