What is Wicked Workshop?
Wicked Workshop is a maker-based program that introduces kids to decision making strategies, complex problem solving and critical thinking opportunities that are recognized as vital 21st century skills necessary to succeed in work, life and citizenship. We do this through a project-based curriculum that introduces problem solving strategies through the materials and methods of construction and the process of idea making.
Oval Huts, Dairy Temples & Holy Milkmen
Experience the design process in this hands-on maker workshop as we imagine, plan, and build original spaces from the architect’s point of view. This semester, we're designing a Toda hut, a brise soleil, a spider house and a beach perch, exploring Ghanaian mosques and toposa granaries of Southern Sudan, learning about Florence Knoll furniture and textiles and Ben Nicholson’s Appliance House. We’ll also envision a book studio for Central Park and analyze huts from Ethiopia that resemble the faces of elephants and become shorter each and every year. Design inspiration is explored through the interactive process of character creation, storytelling and model making. Students learn decision-making strategies, complex problem solving and critical thinking methods through authentic, reality-based projects that foster independent thinking, self-directed learning, exploration, iteration and creativity.
