On Tuesday, 12th February, 3M very happily accepted a gracious invitation from an architect to come to his office to learn more about architecture, as part of their current unit of inquiry about buildings. The architect gave a briefing about architecture, and invited questions from the students. Following this, there were some videos showing how architecture is born from nature, and a discussion, accompanied by a gallery, about the history of architecture going back to the very basics of house design, which are still prevalent in many parts of the world today. The pupils were then set a task, to design and plan their dream houses. There were many original, abstract and creative ideas including, many swimming pools, shops, and a Llama City. The students and teachers alike, had an extremely enriching and informative experience.
Thank you for a wonderful day!
