Working from 2-D to 3-D

During my students first term of their Design course I take them on a series of site visits t0 such places as Kew Gardens, The Science Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum and the Imperial War Museum over a series of several weeks. This enables students firstly to work on their observational drawing skills and also to begin looking at recording the information with the theory of three dimensional Design firmly in their minds. During this time we also begin a series of model making exercises and translating their drawings into a variety of materials that they have never used before. Here are some examples of students work using two millimetre plywood which my students experimented with using their drawings from Kew Gardens, looking at Repetition, Radiation etc.
