Create a Clyde development plan

This project will develop students' k/u of 3D design processes by using the Clyde waterfront as a starting point to create an original facility/building that they would like to see put in place on the Clyde e.g. waterside cafés, museums, sports facilities, parks etc.  They will present to a team: Clyde developer, local architect, local authority personnel and an exhibition at parents' evening.  Learners will work in teams to create one facility each; all of the facilities will then come together to create the complete Clyde waterfront development model. Learners will apply this knowledge in a real life context by considering the impact of development plans on the local community.

Broad Outcomes of learning

• Subject knowledge of the design process gained and enhanced e.g. working to the constraints of the design brief (responsibility to meeting needs of others), construction skills 
• Develop enterprise and employability skills: application of knowledge in a real situation by being able to follow a brief, working in collaboration with others and by discussing the pros & cons of final outcome with whole class and experts 
• Learners have developed enterprising skills identified as 4 capacities of CfE

Relevance to curriculum

• Supports CfE Art & Design studies: students will work with the visual elements: line, texture, form and colour 
• Relevance of how community facilities are relevant to work and life and how this subject knowledge is put into practice in a real situation
