Today and tomorrow you will present your visual and oral presentation on a Boston building of your choice. You will also be an active audience member during the presentations and conclude with the assignment below.
You will be evaluated on the following:
Did the student visit the building?
Did the student answer the questions about the building?
Did the student express their opinion of the building and explain why they felt this way?
Did the student present the information in an organized and understandable manner?
Did the student create a visual presentation that is interesting, organized and easy to understand?
As the viewer and audience member you need to complete the following:
1. Take notes on the presentations (digitally is highly recommended as you were asked to create a folder for this class)
2. On Wednesday you will create a digital "Poster" of the buildings that you saw in the presentation that you liked and would like to visit. There are many " poster making" apps for free. I would download one at home prior to class on Wednesday.
Please complete the following today:
1. Read the last three blog posts and complete all assignments
2. Edit your presentations- double check spelling and show a classmate -EDIT and re- edit if necessary
3. Resend me your presentation
Read the following for homework:

Objective: Create a digital portfolio of your artwork
You will be creating a digital portfolio this year and a blog of your work. You need to document and photograph all of your assignments.
1. Create a folder named " Intro to Architecture" in Evernote, Notarize or other app of your choice.
2. Photograph your marble run
3. Photograph your paper sculpture from multiple angles on top of white or black paper.
** all photographs need to be high quality images
Re- read post Marble Run Design and Document
Document the design process that your group went through to create the marble run. You must create a visual presentation demonstrating the process that you group went through.
You will have the rest of the week to work on this. All members of the group need to participate in the documentation. Be sure to include the successes and failures of the project- this is part of the process as well
So...your group is done? Well, double check the following:
Is your marble run one stable sculpture?
Is it stable?
Have you met all of the criteria?
Check your craftsmanship. Are there glue drips, messy edges, rough edges, messy tape edges? All of this will take away from the aesthetically pleasing part of your marble run.
Does your marble run function?
Does your marble run use on or more marble?
Do you have a place to catch the marbles at the end?
Can you move your sculpture all as one?
Edit your sculpture as necessary and document any edits of changes that you now need to make. This is part of the process.
You now have the challenge of deciding how your group would like to " finish your sculpture". Would you like to paint it of leave it as is? It is important to make sure that you do not distract or detract from the main event- the marble running it's course. You DO NOT want to add embellishments that take away from this. Bright colors and " accessories" can do this - remember less is more.
Design. Your future.
