Architectural shelters go on show at Wiston Lodge
November 18 2015returned to Wiston Lodge, South Lanarkshire, to construct an array of seven architectural shelters interspersed throughout the woodland chosen from a total of 60 submissions.
The school’s first year design studio were briefed to build a series of simple shelters capable of shielding two occupants from the elements, each of which was designed and built on-site.
Each project was assigned a team of students to deliver, beginning with a four week design programme to refine the plans before the group headed on-site to camp over for two days whilst their designs were built.
Year one student Hannah Sapherson remarked: “In this project we investigate the architectural notion of ‘shelter’. The ability to create shelter is the simplest manmade response to our environment and one of the most basic of all human needs.”
The course is designed to develop design and teamwork skills as well as presentation techniques.
