DESIGN PLAY FIVE Part 1 by undergraduate students at SIT
Almost 80 students who are at the third grade of the Architectural Department enjoyed the Design Play 1 and 5 at the Shibaura Institute of Technology in Tokyo. They first made hand writing in the class spending about 20 minutes followed by the explanation of the constructor, Professor Minami. The illustrations in the book of “Conversations with Forms” and some drawings by the instructor were shown as a guidance. After the class students spend a couple of weeks to explore their studies using the Sketch Up as their home works. Some students have no experience to use the Sketch Up before so it took some time to start the Plays. Professor Minami told the students there is no right nor wrong answer for the Design Plays and that students can just develop their design skills by enjoying the Plays. You can see the varieties of our students’ works. This is just the beginning of our students’ works.
