Our first Project briefing
Today we were Introduced to our Interior Design course as 2nd years, where we found out our first Unit will be very quick consisting of 2 week projects, and our first one is in the form of a competition- We will be taking part in “Portsmouth School of Architecture (ARCH) AD: Housing for 8 to 80
An Open Student Design Competition”
“This competition is to encourage students internationally to consider possibilities for different housing scenarios. It provides the opportunity to engage with an issue of Architectural Design (AD). The AD title, Designing for the Third Age: Architecture Redefined for a Generation of ‘Active Agers, guest-edited by Lorraine Farrelly, which is to be published by Wiley in March 2014. The winning submissions will be included in this publication. The competition serves to encourage students to think creatively about how we may live in the future and how living spaces must accommodate changing needs and expectations of society.”
The task: To respond to these changing contexts for living, you are asked to consider 5 ‘moments ‘in the lifetime of the home illustrating this emergent change .To explore a series of different living scenarios across a lifetime.
