Download Human Scale Figure

Using the technique of Zaha Hadid you have learned in the class, design a tent.  The design of the tent should reflect the organic and biomorphic aspect of Zaha’s design.

Here are several notions to consider:

  • Structure vs surface – integrated or separated
  • Overall smoothness and flow
  • Materiality
  • Opening created by the movement of the form
  • Draw a few inspiration sketches, scan, and upload to the website

  • Render 2+ views each plus several views with all tents in the campground and upload them to the web page
