eco cubbies project with Jon Pye Architects
The eco cubby project is about architects working with primary school students to design and, ultimately build sustainable cubbies. We are working with Jon Pye and the year 5 / 6's from Bundalaguah Primary.
So far we have had 2 trips to the school, with the third happening next week. As a group we have undertaken site analysis and identified a site (by a unanimous vote), in the south west corner of the school yard. The students have also made 1:20 precdent study models of playground equipment at their school and models of themselves. They also made a number of sketch models and a final, consolidated, version. This has been translated into measured drawings and the students will make a 1:10 model of the final design in the coming weeks.
