Pupils' love being creative with this project. Lessons are differentiated with strong cross-curricular (Literacy, Geography, Science) links, whilst requiring very little resources (only paper, card and tape). Also Included is diffirenciated resources, and student/teacher examples.
In this lesson students will create a model from scrap cardboard, leading from their creative form drawings from the last Frank Gehry lesson. They will identify and demonstrate the key word ‘Form’ through group tasks, individual tasks and class-discussions. Culminating in a design brief led task; where they are tasked with designing their own gallery or museum, taking inspiration from Gehry's creative process to form.
Lesson consists of literacy starter> class discussions>prep task> main task. Lesson could be extended over several lessons; particularly with the latter task.
If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in my KS3 Architecture series (each lesson for each individual architect). In this unit, pupils will gain an understanding into what is architecture and identify the individual architectural styles and creative processes of varying architects (Le Corbusier, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Daniel Libeskind), applying their understanding through 2D and 3D model-making.
