Apr '14 - Nov '14
We headed up to Mangawhai heads for an intensive two day workshop to get the design process underway. The 16 students were put into groups of four with each group proposing a different scheme.
Studio 19 is a collaboration between UNITEC and Strachan Group Architects (SGA). Third year architecture students are given the opportunity to work along side SGA to design, document and build a project. The Brief from Ngāti Whātua O Ōrākei was to design of a master plan of eight houses for elderly tribe members. One of these houses is to be documented and built by the students.
