The Shell-Grid Learning Project

This project was derived from Judith Walker's Seniors Geography project on Sustainable Living.  With the help of Charlie Whinney Studios OMS children and staff are designing a new outdoor learning space deep in our coppice at Forest Farm.  Using shell-grid natural forms (an example below) we are building a den / teaching space like no other.  Somewhere to inspire!  The design phase / March / April 2015.  Building is now almost complete.... Watch this space.  Below are images from design to creation.  

If you would like to see all the images and videos showing the planning and development of this project please go to the google album link HERE.  Interested in Charlie's design work, there's an interesting film on his steam bending techniques below...
