Digital creativity

Workshop-House of the future

House of the future

Have you ever thought about what the house of the future would look like? Or what you would like your dream house to look like? In this fun workshop, you will play architect yourself.
Using tablets and iPads, you design your dream house in 2D and 3D using a programme. Here, you need to think carefully about which parts you would like to have in it. For example, if you choose to have two bathtubs in one room, there may not be enough room for the cupboards. You also have to consider the function of each room. For example, it is very awkward to place kitchen appliances in a bedroom. Virtual design in three dimensions teaches you how objects relate to each other. With so-called 'design thinking', you learn to design in dimensions and to explore them. This technique is widely used by architects and visual designers these days.

Key objectives
Students learn to use 3D design to communicate. This allows them to translate topics as they perceive them through a digital tool. They gain some knowledge and appreciation of aspects of storytelling. They also acquire animation skills and techniques in an exploratory phase. In addition, they learn to deal with new media, such as tablets and iPads. Pupils learn to look differently at their surroundings, as well as improving their sensory perceptions.
