Todays lesson was all about making models and manipulating your material into different shapes and sizes. We were asked to bring in any scrap materials or paper to create the models with.
First we reproduced a ‘Sign’ chair by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga using just paper in 5 minutes, here are my attempts:
Then we had use influences from the ‘Hotel Marques De Riscal’ by Frank Gehry in 5 minutes, here is my attempt:
I had to do my take on ‘Centre of Contemporary Art’ by Zaha Hadid in 10 minutes, but this time I used coloured card, here is my attempt:
Reproduced the ‘Bridge of Aspiration’ by Royal Ballet School London in 15 minutes, here is my attempt:
Different sketchmodel technique:
Next we had to interpret the patterns we were given and make them 3D by adding paper shapes to them. I stuck both my pictures to cardboard to give it a sturdier surface.
We had to have straight lines only in this model and build up from the shapes in 25 minutes, here are a few photos of my attempt:
This time I was could only use circles to produce this model in 25 minutes, here is my attempt:
We were given 15 minutes to respond to a video of a skater in a skate park and this is my response to it:
I learned from the lesson is that you can make models in response to things you see or be inspired by the forms around you.
