As part of their new scheme of work, Year 8 have been learning about architecture, and...
... in particular the Golden Ratio, its relationship with the Fibanacci sequence and how they can be incorporated into design. Their exploration has focused upon the work of Zaha Hadid and they have been encouraged to adopt her free-flowing style in the building designs they are working on.
To enhance their experience, 8S were very lucky to have an architect (you may recognize him!) joining their lesson on Tuesday to talk about architectural principles and the sequence of design from a professional perspective. Many thanks, Matt, for giving up your time to visit us; it was an inspiring and valuable 50 minutes.
In other news, as promised, you will find the CAD drawings of all the coasters from the boys in 5W, top work, boys!
