Extreme Architecture November 5, 2008

The 4th graders have been hard at work with their architectural designs. As architects, the students were given teacher-clients to create designs for. Among the requests are theaters, libraries, houses, vacation homes, and night clubs. The young architects have been taking inspiration from some extreme architecture around the world. Here are some links of some great photo galleries and blogs showcasing some of the unusual structures the kids have been looking at.

While the students are focused on the exterior architectural designs for their projects, this is a great video about a pair of architects who are taking an unusual approach to the interior of their homes:

A couple of the designs in progress:
