Seventeen year old Joe Bailey has a real interest in architecture and has based his end of year 3D Design project on a cityscape, focussing on different shapes and sizes of buildings and structures.
Joe, formerly of Manor C of E Academy, is studying Level 3D Design Craft at York College and wants to progress to university to study a degree in architecture. For his 3D project he was inspired to take a closer look at city architecture, focusing on building and population density, using six different materials; ceramics, wood, copper, glass, concrete and laser-cut plywood. His model incorporates everthing from houses to skyscrapers and took him around six weeks to create.
Joe says: “Universities say they are looking for more creative minds and talents, as well as academic students, when they recruit for architecture courses. I hope this project will help me to stand out when I apply to university after completing this course.” He adds; “I enjoy subjects like maths and science but I don't particularly like exams. I have thrived on the first year of the 3D Design Craft vocational course, which has given me the opportunity to work with all kinds of materials. I have always enjoyed making things and this course allows me to have a creative approach to everything I do.”
