Introducing Students to the Architectural Design Process, With IAF's National Architects in Schools Initiative

Earlier this year, as part of the Irish Architecture Foundation's National Architects in Schools Initiative, C.J. Falconer & Associates worked closely with pupils from De La Salle College Waterford, towards providing students with first-hand experience of the architectural design process, under the guidance of design professionals.

In the lesson pictured below, topics such scale, proportion, and the technology & ergonomics of enclosure-design were introduced to the students; followed by an exercise in understanding 2D & 3D, and how a drawing on a page can be turned into a box. Students were encouraged to explore further, developing allowances for openings doors/windows/ screens, and more.

Well done to all involved - and for more on the initiative, visit: http://architecturefoundation....
