Geotales Workshop at ECA


On February 1-2 Esther conducted a Geotales workshop at the Edinburgh College  of Art in collaboration with Chris Speed. Based on 3 assignments, about 100 Architecture students produced a series of very nice projects.
Of each I present here one  example of the many beautiful workshop results:

1 -Work with 2 lines:

1)Middle Meadow Walk
2)Lecture Theatre
6)Material Shop
7)Work Shop
8)Middle Meadow walk

2 -Relocate an existing, meaningful route.

Reversed Home
We listed the directions that we take on our way from home to University and used them to
instruct our directions for walking home. Left became right and right became left.

3 -Draw a spiral

“Spiral Of Life: A geographical journey marking a life story, covering 80 years in 2 hours.
0 years, Lauriston hospital – born at the spiral centre.
5-11 years, George Heriot school – cheeky but well-behaved.
12-17 years, St Thomas Of Aquinas R C high school – intelligent and friendly.
