BEginning Architecture- Part 2 - The Home
This EXCITING, INCREDIBLE AND LONG AWAITED, NINE-LESSON course was designed especially for students ages 7-12 years old. Following Beginning Architecture - Part 1, we will continue using things like paper, popsicle sticks, straws, paper plates, pipe cleaners along with any available materials (legos, cardboard, wood etc.) or methods (CAD) that students prefer to design their own homes!. Each lesson we will concentrate on designing and personalizing a specific room of our homes. By the end of the course, students will have designed a home specific to their personal tastes . This course provides more specific architectural challenges for students who are interested in playing with and learning about architecture and some interior design, while still not quite ready for the rigor of the Introduction to Architecture Course.
This course is taken completely through websites.
This course is a lot of fun (even for moms and dads:)!
(Materials are not included).

*If you are intending to use the lessons for a co-op or group setting, Mrs. G. tries to make these courses affordable for as many students in a family as you might have, but hopes that you will respect the honesty code and will purchase one course per family.
The project below is one that is far more than what was assigned for this course. This is an example of an eleven year old design prodigy's work (Alex). I thought it might be fun to see what can be done. He did this with Minecraft, but many students use other mediums for this course such as paper, cardboard, clay, SketchUp and poster board. It still amazes me what young students can do if given the opportunity!
