Design Problem

The current D&A centre is outdated and not optimised for the needs of the classes. This building was build for temporary use while other parts of the school were under construction. Many of the STEM classes require technology and resources that are not always best provided for in this building. The main focus of the re-design is to make this space optimised for the environment. Construction is one of the biggest contributor to the global carbon emissions. This is often due to the materials used and how the building is made.

Design Process

This project will consist of researching of building materials, sketching ideas, learning ArchiCAD, and learning how to make a building sustainable.

During my research I looking into different building materials like mycelium, cob etc. to design a building that would last.
