Architecture student shows 2011: Portsmouth School of Architecture
Portsmouth School of Architecture’s show this year is called ‘The Process of Architecture and Design’.
This year staff in the school have been recording aspects of development of students work to explain how their students have reached their final designs. The intention is to try to reveal the thinking behind the design.
The ‘idea’ is the ‘real’ architecture or interior for the students; the way they represent their ideas and interpret these concepts individually. As designers they inhabit their spaces.
This year the show celebrates the process as much as the product of the students’ year and demonstrates a range scale of engagements and thinking from a door handle design at 1:1 real size, to an interior room, to a city at a scale of 1: 1250.
All of these designs require shifts of thinking, an understanding of materials, of human activity, anthropometrics, and physical landscapes and cityscapes. Conceptual thinking stimulates the whole process and starts the journey of the design idea.
