As part of our unit of inquiry about architecture, Grade 5 was tasked with designing and building a model structure that could be used to house students to make ISL into a boarding school.
We began with programming session with our Director, Mr. Johnson, who told us all the things we needed to consider when designing our structures. The students used this information, along with everything else they had learned about architecture, to design and build their models.
The finished models were evaluated by a panel of judges: Mrs. Baztán (a local architect), Mr. Johnson and Mrs. Pattinson. Well done to all Grade 5s on their fantastic work during this unit, and a special congratulations to Maya, Océane and Sofia for winning this year’s Junior Pritzker Architecture Prize for excellence in architectural design!
