AA Design + Make Masters study at the Architectural Association Hooke Park

Concept models and sketches

A busy week spent in understanding the different ideas for systems and materials through sketches,models and prototypes.
Timber wall and floor ideas were explored. Thatching as an idea was ruled out and shingles were to be explored further.
Tree forks of different sizes were gathered from around the forest, 3D scanned and used to build on the idea of trusses . Met with engineers from ARUP for the first time and discussed our ideas for the design. Shingling mock-ups were made and analysed.
