‘Floating Ice Cream Temple’ by S.L.Curtis, age 9
'Topography, Climate and Architecture'
In our second summer workshop, we learnt about architecture, climate and landscape differences in Europe and Asia. ArchiMembers were challenged to build a replica of Greek Parthenon temple, that sits on top of Tibetan mountain.
ArchiMember built a ‘Bubble Temple’ model with ‘ice cream and nice views”. She then took on the challenge and customized her temple by removing bottom half of columns and placed them on the roof. She likes that “on the sides it floating!”
We are amazed with ArchiMember’s creative thinking, good decision making and courage to test abstract ideas.
