This class is for those who want to build on a grand scale. Mega tall pyramids and skyscrapers up to the ceiling, a bridge as long as their classroom or a watchtower for their favorite superhero are among the structures students are going to erect in this class. Besides the largest team projects in the Afterschool world, young architects will work individually to build furniture, create 3D scale model of their dream house, design a street facade and even produce a masterplan of a city where their friends and family could live. The graduates of the class will learn exciting terms and concepts such as classical Vitruvian principles, light & shadow, aesthetics, positive & negative space, texture, composition, visual & spatial thinking, scale and much more.
