Second years, please bring your portfolio in the right order again and the latest work printed for comments and mark ups. Tomorrow we will go through it and see what is missing. Please make sure you have yellow post-its or similar to mark the missing sheets. On Friday will be presentation rehearsals!

Third years, please bring your work printed for mark ups.

During the crit we noticed that in most students’ work there is a gap (second and third years) between the done research and the proposed design. There is hardly any in-between showing project development, or explanation of the design in graphical terms, or contextual work. Sketches and mainly diagrams are very important to fill that gap. We will show some more examples tomorrow. 

The tutorial list is:

10:00 Daniel + Charlotte

10:40 Caspar + Maciej

11:20 Chiao + Ludvig

13:00 Qian + Zhi Wee

13:50 Ryad + Reina

14:40 Kechao + Shobha

Friday 17/5 Presentation Rehearsals by Nathan

Tomorrow we will do rehearsals for the final crit and workshop your overall narrative/presentation. It’s a chance to test how to organise the hierarchy of your work (drawings, films, models) and also to identify what pieces can be further developed by Monday. Please come ready to do a run-through of your work in 8-10 minutes. Sequencing is key so think about how you frame your design project in terms of term 1 research, the unit trip, and Technical Studies. Think of how you can organise by theme, importance/relevance to your design, social/environmental agendas – rather than by the chronology of what you did in the year.

Bring your key drawings printed, show films on the screen, have models/booklets on hand and bring a sheet with your planned wall layout on it as we discussed last time I saw you. Spend some time tonight preparing by writing out your project title, synopsis and argument coherently. Remember that your audience doesn’t know your research interests, the nature of the sites we visited, the unit’s understanding of mythology/narrative so you need to communicate these alongside/to contextualise the content of your project.

Tutorial times below:

10:30 – Kechao + Qian

11:30 – Maciej + Riyad

12:30 – Shobha + Zhi Wee

14:00 – Caspar + Chiao

15:00 – Charlotte + Reina

16:00 – Daniel + Ludvig

Looking forward to it!
