Tutorial Groups!

Hi All,

You can find your tutorial groups for ARCH1101 here:

Please ignore the tutorial groups you selected through the online system when you enrolled; the online system doesn't take advantage of the mix of students we have in the class, but your new tutorial groups do.

Search on the page linked above using ctrl+F (in Chrome or Internet Explorer) or the search window in Firefox to find your name in the list.

See you at the lecture on Thursday (12, midday).

And in the studio from 2pm.

Before the first class ...

Hi All,

Before the first class, follow the steps below...

Step 1: create a blog at

note: use your own name to name your blog, use “awesome inc.” as a default template…

Step 2: post three images ...

a: your best piece of creative work before coming to this course, think laterally if you have not done "conventional" art or design work
b: an image of a great piece of architecture
c: an original photograph of something beautiful

Step 3: write a paragraph under each of the images that tells us something interesting about them.

Step 4: find an image showing a creative work from each of the companies/designers below (they will be your clients in experiment 1) and describe it using a noun, verb and adjective; see below for examples.

note: be creative with your selection of words, this will help!

Revival Cycles ( Noun, Verb, Adjective

CJ Hendry ( Noun, Verb, Adjective

Gucci ( Noun, Verb, Adjective

Step 5: purchase a 0.5mm black pen (artline or similar), and a squared cahier pocket moleskin notebook (you can get these from the unsw bookshop).

Step 6: if you would like to get ahead, download and install the latest version of the modelling software "sketchup" on your laptop.
