Ceramic Slab Buildings Unit
Goal is to design and create a building using mainly slab construction. Be sure to keep in mind size requirement, what culture it's representing, the time period it was made, and what function it is serving as you work through the design process. Track your design process using a google doc of your choice. Groupe everything as it is presented below, but you can complete them in any order ;-)
Part 1: See how others' have tackled a similar problem. Watch the video and respond to the following...
Part 2: Collect Source Images. Look up photographs of real buildings to serve as inspiration for your designs (even if you want to tackle something fantastical). Copy/paste images into a google doc of your choice.
Keep: Culture, Time Period, and Function in mind!

- What's your favorite building from a movie, show, or cartoon - how is it important to the story? what makes it unique? what details must be included for audience to know what it is? (Free write, or word web)
