Statement of inquiry- The design of buildings and structures is dependent upon environmental factors, human ingenuity, and available materials.

In Design class the MYP1 students have been learning about architecture, the project is to design a pavilion for the outside space just in front of the school.

The pavilion could be a social space or could be used as an outdoor classroom. The students have selected their own function and are creating exciting designs fit for that purpose. They have taken inspiration for the form of the design from nature.

This week the students were using a CAD program (computer aided design) to create a 3D digital version of their design.

Anna has designed a bike shed, Shani a canteen, Tiago a swimming pool and Riana a cafe.
