Kings X Workshop Summary

Kings X Workshop Summary
I've always been a fan of Vernacular Architecture and to finally be able to teach such a topic to the young future, it feels like I have come full circle. Water plays such a vital role in our daily lives as well as in design - this week we took a step in exploring how water impacts the human race around the world. We explored monsoon seasons and how people who live in regions that experience these seasons have adapted this living style to accommodate.
Kings X Workshop Summary
This week's workshop introduced flooding and how Malaysian vernacular architecture uses key characteristics in the design to tackle this climactic issue. The students were set a task of drawing a vernacular building and adding context that would influence the reasoning for its design.
The children were very interested by the subject and came up with answers during the presentation. The drawing exercise was a success and everyone enjoyed it.

Kings X Workshop Summary
Brilliant workshop and a great response from more mature students. Everyone was interested in the subject and interacted during the presentation.
The children were really interested when they were introduced to what a Vernacular structure was asking for different examples. Really good engagement throughout this workshop.
They said they enjoyed the task and didn’t find it too difficult to follow.
