Unit 5.2 introduction: We are architects

Creating a virtual space

About this unit

Software:   Google SketchUp (used for 3-D modelling)

Outcome:   A virtual gallery in which children’s work might be displayed

As well as providing access to locations far away, computers allow us to create imaginary, virtual locations, and allow others to visualise these, trying out ideas, changing things and seeing immediately the effect those changes have. For architects, interior (or landscape) designers and civ engineers, this is a very powerful tool, and in schoo similar software allows children to create realistic representations of fictional places such as an art gallery, in this case.
