‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’

Can you design a new swimming pool complex for our school?

‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’

We began by researching the process Danish architect Jorn Utzon went through before entering his plans into a national competition in 1957 to design a new opera house for Sydney Harbour. We made our own paper plate Opera Houses. 

 

Next, we explored ways of making paper strong enough to hold a 1kg weight.

In pairs, we began designing our swimming pools. We had some key questions to consider:

 

What will you need to consider when sketching out your swimming pool?

What are the fundamental requirements for our swimming pool building? (Access, changing rooms, toilets, nursery safety.).

What decisions can you make as individual architects?

 

After submitting 3 sketches; side on, face on and birds eye view, we were ready to begin building our models.
