Building an archive

15 students have been selected from Key Stage 3 to design and build an archive for the reception in the school. The archive will be the home place of art department publications and copies of ae, for visitors to enjoy. The project is in collaboration with architectural design and build wizards, co-db. www.co-db.uk

Students were chosen from a warm-up project with art teachers Ruth Taylor and Dean Ewen-Coulson, in which they were given a brief by co-db to design an archive in a supermarket for various collections of objects including inflatables, stuffed birds, and balls!

James and Eva from co-db came in for one day to design the archive with the students. Students worked in groups to come up with ideas and now Eva and James have the large task of building all the best ideas together in one design! In the next workshop, we will construct and install the archive, and of course have a celebration!
