The 5th graders have been hired by teachers in our school to design buildings. Teachers were given surveys to fill out, which asked them to describe a building they would want designed and built. The students were each assigned to a teacher-client, and they are currently busy designing the ideal buildings. Throughout this project, the students will learn about the architecture of Frank Gehry, Antonio Gaudi, and IM Pei as inspiration. Here are some works in progress; an apartment building, a beach house, a castle, and mountain lodge.
