Francesco Draisci, architect and designer

  • Grimsby Institute

The Grimsby Institute Art&Design Club loved the Masterclass with multidisciplinary architect and designer Francesco Draisci.

The session began with Francesco giving the young people an insight into his background, career and projects, and then introducing their challenge: to create a model of a room that represented them as individuals. Each member was given a ready-made blank model with two walls and a floor and asked to think about the space, how it would work, what colours they would use and how they would design the interior space.

Francesco also asked them to make a scale model of themselves from modelling clay to include in the room. There was intense activity as everyone worked hard, thoroughly enjoying the making process, and at the end of the session they presented their work and held a group critique of all their room models.
