Start date: Deadline for presentation: Deadline for report hand-in: Assessment dates:

Monday 14 October 2013. Thursday 24 October 2013. Thursday 24 October 2013. Thursday 7 November 2013.

This project has been planned to provide evidence for assessment of the following units:

Unit 3 Unit 85

Ideas and Concepts in Art and Design Exploring Specialist Techniques

Important note: This project is available in a larger font, on alternative coloured background and can be assessed remotely through your Tumblr site. The tasks are formatted so that they can be viewed and tackled in bite-size chunks. Interim on-going assessments are always available; if you need help, do ask your tutors.
Attached to this project brief is a grading chart for the above units explaining the criteria against which your submitted work will be assessed. GRADING: Each unit will be graded as pass, merit or distinction.

Project Brief: A4DM003-1314 3D Design YR 1 Project Title: Folding Architecture Brief This project requires you (as individuals) to research how paper has been used in historical and contemporary building design and simultaneously explore how it

might be used as a material to discover architectural forms that feature folded elements in their design. It is about seeing and recognising greater potential within the exploration of a seemingly simple material. Rules have been set to be applied to your exploration and these must be strictly adhered to! Rule 1. You must start with a regular sheet of A4 paper and you are not allowed to remove or cut away any of the sheet; you must use it all; nor can you add to the sheet; in other words the area of paper being used must always remain A4. Rule 2. You cannot use any other media; glue, gum, sticky tape of any sort, staples or any other form of fastening that introduces another technology. You can only construct and form through folding, cutting and incising! Task 1. Unit 3: D1 & Unit 85: D1 Independently analyse and interpret research to generate personal ideas and concepts, applying sophisticated thinking in generating, modifying and synthesising original ideas. You can show this through your visual and written research on the historical and contemporary use of paper products and their influence within architectural design. Analyse the characteristics of specialist materials and techniques within the chosen specialist field through informed, practical research. Within your journal show your knowledge of different papers and folding techniques, such as origami and kirigami. Recognise and describe both the constraints and potential of this material when considering both its functional and aesthetic values if to be constructed into a working space. Task 2. Unit 85: D2 Simultaneously to task 1 use findings from your investigations on specialist materials and techniques too independently and innovatively develop your own work. Carry out your own investigation of the material working with A4 sheets of paper whilst adhering strictly to the two rules set out above, showing unrestricted exploration! Record all your findings acknowledging any strengths or weaknesses in the embryonic design you are exploring.

Task 3. Unit 3: D2 & Unit 85: P3/P4 Using the knowledge and understanding gained from tasks 1 and 2, demonstrate an individual and perceptive approach to producing and communicating innovative and engaging work, using sophisticated presentation methods by presenting to your peers and tutors a PowerPoint presentation of suitable length, reflecting your development cycle.

Within your journal explore the potential of specialist materials and techniques safely, recording all materials and techniques used along the way, noting all aspects of health and safety. Finally produce records of technical information about specialist materials and techniques, evaluating your outcome explaining its potential. Your evaluation should be of suitable length, be word processed and spell checked. Key Dates & Deliveries. You have two weeks to complete this project, at the end of which you must produce all the required outcomes in order to pass. Introductory briefing: Monday 14 October 2013 at 10am Deadline & Presentations: Thursday 24 October 2013 at 10am In order to achieve to PASS this project will be assessed against ALL the following minimum requirements: Unit 3: Ideas and Concepts in Art and Design
-Understand how ideas and concepts inform art and design work. -Know how to generate ideas. -Be able to generate and refine ideas in response to given briefs. -Be able to communicate and present ideas and outcomes to different audiences.

Unit 85: Exploring Specialist Techniques


-Understand the characteristics of the specialist field. -Be able to investigate specialist materials and techniques. -Be able to record investigations about the properties of specialist materials and techniques.

Evidence required for either a pass, merit or distinction is shown on the below assessment grid. Suggested Starting Point Bibliography: Almost any publication on contemporary architecture might provide evidence for the research required for this assignment!

Assessment and grading criteria

Unit 3: Ideas and Concepts in Art and Design


To achieve a pass grade the evidence must show that the To achieve a merit grade the evidence must show that, in To achieve a distinction grade the evidence must show that, in addition

learner is able to: P1 compare ideas and concepts in art and design work [IE, CT, RL, SM, EP]

addition to the pass criteria, the learner is able to:

M1 use the results of purposeful


research and investigation to inform own ideas and concepts, demonstrating coherent direction in originating and developing ideas M2 demonstrate a considered approach to producing purposeful ideas and solutions in response to briefs, presenting work coherently and effectively.

to the pass and merit criteria, the learner is able to: D1 independently analyse and interpret research to generate personal ideas and concepts, applying sophisticated thinking in generating, modifying and synthesising original ideas

P2 investigate ideas
generating techniques [EP, CT, IE, SM]

D2 demonstrate an individual and


perceptive approach to producing and communicating innovative and engaging work, using sophisticated presentation methods.

P3 generate and refine ideas


in response to given briefs [TW, EP, CT, IE, SM, RL] P4 communicate and present ideas and outcomes to different audiences. [RL, CT, TW, SM, EP]

Unit 85: Exploring Specialist Techniques


To achieve a pass grade the evidence must show that the learner is able to: P1 review the characteristics of the chosen specialist field [RL] P2 investigate examples of practitioners works P3 explore the potential of specialist materials and techniques safely [IE, SM, TW] P4 produce records of technical information about specialist materials and techniques (RL). To achieve a merit grade the evidence must show that, in addition to the pass criteria, the learner is able to: M1 compare the characteristics of specialist materials and techniques within the chosen specialist field M2 apply findings from investigations on specialist materials and techniques to own work.
