Learn essential design skills in this combined Summer School delivered by staff from our BA(Hons) Architecture, BA(Hons) Interior Design, and BA(Hons) Sustainable Product Design courses at Falmouth. You will spend one day with each course as detailed below:
Are you interested in becoming an architect? Do you have a passion for design? Do you have an interest in creating a sustainable future for the built environment? You will spend the day working with a qualified architect, being introduced to the processes of design from an initial interpretation of a brief, experimentation of design ideas, model-making and finally communicating your design. The day will be a run as a mirror to the new BA(Hons) Architecture course here at Falmouth University so you will get a real eye-opener into the kind of skills, techniques and processes required to study architecture.
After a presentation on the world of interior design, you will take part in a hands-on workshop using a model to create an interior space for a well-known celebrity of your choice. During this session you will also have the chance to develop your sketching, drawing, photography and presentation skills through delivering your proposals to the group.
Sustainable Product Design
In this workshop staff from Sustainable Product Design will show you how they work and find opportunities for 3D design to make the world a better place. The workshop promotes collaborative working, communication and problem solving, and will give you an insight into how designers think and find creative solutions. You will learn how your ideas can go from a sketch on paper to a successful solution.
The sessions will also provide opportunities to gain advice on applying for a degree course through UCAS and preparing a portfolio for interview.
