Overview

This Summer University project focuses on exploring Berlin through analogue hand drawing, and then using drawing and model making methods to design and construct a small building project.

The course will run as follows:
Week 1: Exploring Berlin through hand drawing
Week 2: Site analysis through hand drawing
Week 3: Design phase (analogue techniques)
Week 4: Construction phase
