Continuing with the explorations of last Term the unit will finally explore the skin of the schematic block proposals. This was firstly conducted last week in an intuitive manner, testing different materials, such as wood, metal, concrete or plastic, and opening solutions giving a range of schematic envelope schemes.

As a second part of this exercise, students will construct a specific through 1:100/1:50 scale models detailing part of the envelope and block proposal.
