Stage 3 Architecture students produce online exhibition of their Thinking Through Making projects

16 February 2022

Thinking Through Making Week takes place in week one of semester two and is an opportunity for Stage 3 to produce a conceptual made piece exploring the tectonic themes inherent in their project.

Material forms the core of architecture's practice - be it the material of construction or that of the drawing board or digital interface, the way making inflects thinking underlies the production of architecture. Thinking Through Making Week challenges students to use the skills and knowledge acquired during Semester 1's Tools for Designing workshops series to produce an explorative model that embodies the material and tectonic qualities of their emerging design projects.

Throughout the week, students explored the possibilities of a chosen material or selection of material(s), the potentials of technologies, and the viability of systems or structures through acts of making. Students were asked to approach the week with an open mind, allowing themselves to be experimental in their choice of material and the processes of making whilst embracing both success and failure as a productive experience.
