(For Students) Objective Welcome, St. Augustine High School! We’re so glad you could join us for our Design-Build Charette at the 2015 Edpaces and AIA CAE Conference! We sit in chairs everyday yet people do not think of what went into how these everyday objects are made, from design (concept) to the realized built structure. Your task is to design and build a chair. The users of this chair are students and/or teachers in an educational setting. Today, with the help of your mentors, architecture students from Tulane University, you’ll explore in depth how chairs are created. The constraint: we are providing you the material and a tight 4 hour timeline to design, build, and present your work. First, you’ll be assigned to one of four (4) groups. You will be given the first half of the charette (around 1 hour and 30 mins) to design what chair you’d like to create. This allotts for sketching / building small models (prototyping) / experimenting, etc. In the second half of the charette (also around 1 hour and 30 mins) you will build your vision with the materials provided. The final chair should be full-sized and functional. You will be able to present your process and chair to professional architects and designers. Remember, think big, but it’s also key to think practical!We look forward to seeing what you envision!


(For Mentors / Attendees) Objective

> To provide high schools students opportunity to work through entire design process, from conception to prototyping to presentation, in a condensed 4-hour period > To discuss the importance of having student voices involved in the design of learning spaces and equipment > To explain the design elements of a chair that students find important > To understand the thought process for students, high school and university when creating objects for learning environments > To provide design professionals the opportunity to observe and engage with students in a design exercise

TERMINOLOGY ELEMENTS OF DESIGN SPACE — the space taken up by (positive) or in between (negative) objects FORM: informed by Shape, Size, Color, Texture - sense of a three-dimensional mass / volume, configuration - primary shapes (circle, triangle, square) v. irregular forms - addition versus subtraction FUNCTION: activity or purpose natural to or intended for a person or thing. LINE: the visual path that enables the eye to move within the piece TONE: shading used to emphasize form SHAPE: outline or surface configuration, defined by edges = principal category of form - geometric v. organic TEXTURE: visual and tactile (connected with the sense of touch) given to the surface by size, shape, arrangement, proportions DEPTH — perceived distance from the observer, separated in foreground, background, and optionally middle ground SIZE: dimensions of length, width, depth of form - Scale = size in relation to other objects in its context COLOR: hues with saturation, intensity and tonal value - Affects visual weight of form
