Inventive Houses

This week the children were given an architecture project in collage form. They looked at various examples of unusual house based on organic shapes. The above houses were based on the Shell and the Mushroom respectively - stunning!

So I gave the children different objects to choose from; a crystal, some rocks, driftwood, mushrooms, brocolli, a pineapple and flowers. They were to design the exterior of a house based on the object they chose.

Here we have a great Crystal House:

Here we have a super vibrant Mushroom house:

Here we have a fun brocolli house:

And here we have a series of creative dwellings based on a bunch of flowers:

A really great project to get the children to look at things differently. See you next week! x
