Charter High School for Architecture + Design (A)

Spring 2018
Classroom Teacher: Andrew Phillips
Teaching-Artist: Alexandra Snowden

Students from the Charter High School for Architecture + Design (CHAD) interpreted ideas featured in By the Book Vol. 2: New Photography Publications through lessons in photography with an emphasis on architecture and built environments. Students developed new ways of seeing their surroundings through the photographic lens and built their draughtsmanship skills, technical abilities and knowledge of contemporary art. They experimented with monoprinting and collage. To complement CHAD’s junior architecture curriculum, students collaborated to create model urban spaces by combining their individual monoprints and photographs into collages that were applied to three-dimensional modular structures.
