On Friday, GSD alum Andrew Hartness brought a kindergarten class to the GSD. They toured the facilities, were greeted by Dean Mostafavi (who talked to them about Career Discovery!), and got a lesson from Andrew on the different orthographic drawing types (plan, section, elevation) and how they, together with models, explain a building. A few of us also got to present our "lodge house" projects, which, because of the familiarity of the type of gable-roofed house that defined our site, we thought would be accessible for mini minds. After the presentations, the kids drew their own houses, and Andrew collected the drawings with the aim of making a Rhino model based on them so he can plot out some drawings (and maybe even a 3D print) for them to keep in their classroom.
