Advanced Architecture 3 - Zoo Design
This EXCITING, INCREDIBLE AND LONG AWAITED, NINE-LESSON course was designed for students who have completed the Introduction to Architecture Course. Throughout the nine lessons of this course, students will design their own zoos!. Each lesson we will concentrate on designing and personalizing a specific habitat of our zoo.
This nine lesson course is taken asynchronously through websites and emails. Students must fully complete each lesson before moving on the to the next lesson. The course may be taken over 9 or 18 weeks with due dates weekly or every other week. (Special circumstances may be made for students needing a more flexible schedule). Schedules may be revised as necessary with parental permission, but deadlines are encouraged.
Students are expected to: design each habitat, write papers about their chosen animals for the habitat, and study the geography of the country of the animals included. By the end of the course, students will have designed a zoo specific to their personal tastes and studies. This course provides more specific architectural and scientific challenges for students who are interested in learning about more architectural design along with geography and zoology.
Emailed reviews and grades provide students the opportunity to grow and excel according to their abilities. Students should expect to work on the course for 6-10 hours per lesson. Usually 1/2 high school credit is suggested (based on 90 hours of course work). The work in this course will provide significant work for college applications and AP Art portfolios.
Students may use: Sketchup, Minecraft, cardboard, paper, wood or anything they desire to make their models.
This course is highly individualized.
