How has the inclusion of real clients, sites, and project briefs affected your design process in DAB710? How has this influenced the final outcome of your architectural design?
By using real clients, this has constantly challenged the design process. No longer was this design, created without considering real world ideas such as budgets, introduction of new materials, reuse of old materials.
Also the need for children spaces to comply with building codes, and a specific learning approach challenged any preconceived notions of what is required in an early learning space and what kids find fun.
This can be seen from through the feedback that was given by Early Childhood Learning Students in terms of the outdoor spaces in the design of the Lone Pine Kinder Early Learning Centre.
