NBHP Workshop Summary
At the Monday Archimake workshop at NBHP school children were tasked to make a model of their flood resistant house design. They worked in groups of three.
They've continued their designs from orthographic drawings to give us these wonderful models of flood resistant houses.
They worked very well together as a team and completed their models with material textures.
- Ivy
During this week's lesson, we put into practice the skills and techniques we learned in previous sessions. We selected a few practical designs, and the students were pleased with the process of transforming their conceptual ideas into tangible designs.
I am proud to have overseen the remarkable designs that were produced. The students thoroughly enjoyed working collaboratively to create them and had a fun time doing so.

Kings X Workshop Summary
All the Sunday children in KX3 worked very well in the workshop. They all individually made their models to the exact design of their orthographic drawing.
They also began to include material textures in their work.
- Ivy
For week 7 of the Archimake Samsung KX Group 1 workshops the students focused on model making. The students were divided into 2 groups and voted on which group member's design to create. This workshop encouraged the students to think creatively in 3D using the materials available.
It was interesting to see how the models progressed in response to being flood resistant with one group using a combination of a pontoon and stilts. The students were engaged throughout and were challenged to use their problem solving skills. Something which is important to develop in future Architects in response to the climate crisis.

NBS Workshop Summary
For this weeks workshop at archimake the children had the opportunity to explore the great use of and effectiveness on materials. In the presentation they were shown creative ways on how to represent water and solar panels and different materials easily using a pen also with a show case of some portfolio work from a student.
They then got into their group and began the creative process of making their Flood Resistant house. As the children dove into the task they had great fun helping each other in making the model. In the process the children showed good understanding to what materials to use to represent the water, brick and concrete.
Overall I believe they all have fun and showed a good level of a supportive spirit.
