Create a new Clyde skyline

This project will develop students' k/u of 3D design processes by using Clyde architecture as a starting point to create an original building to win the chance to participate in a presentation to a Clyde developer; local architect; local authority personnel and an exhibition at parents' evening.  Each building will come together to create 4 new skylines (of 5 buildings each) at the end of the project (learners will be split into teams for this).

Broad Outcomes of learning

• Subject knowledge gained and enhanced e.g. the design process, working to the constraints of the design brief (responsibility to meeting needs of others), construction skills 
• Develop enterprise and employability skills: application of knowledge in a real situation by being able to follow a brief, by being in competition with others and by presenting final outcome to whole class (selling your product also relates to selling oneself in an interview situation) 
• Learners have developed enterprising skills identified as 4 capacities of CfE

Relevance to curriculum

• Supports CfE Art & Design studies, students will work with the visual elements: line, shape, form and colour 
• Relevance of how architecture is relevant to work and life (discuss types of buildings) and how this subject knowledge is put into practice in a real situation e.g. architects competing for bids
