Create a Modern or Classical House (or both!)
11 Diamond Project or
6 Diamond Project
Located at the Gatos Theater
In this project, you will be learning about the differences between modern and classical architecture. After you see a video from Teacher Matt about the differences, you will do a drawing activity and an identification activity. To finish the project you will a modern or classical house in Montessori City for a maximum of 6 Diamonds. If you want to go for 11 Diamonds, you can try to build one of each.
Now I'd like you to take a look at the Microsoft Word document to the right. It shows a whole bunch of buildings and houses. Some are classical and some are modern. Download the Word doc and write under each one whether you think it is a modern building or a classical building. Then upload it to your folder on Google Drive.
The last step is to create a modern and/or classical house in a residential (housing) area of Montessori City. You can choose to do one of the other for 6 Diamonds or you can do both for 11 Diamonds.
Here are the requirements for each house:
* It has to be easily identifiable as either Classical or Modernist. Don't forget to include a lot of details demonstrating why it is one or the other.
*It has to have two floors and a basement (not counting the basement)
*It should have at least 8 rooms and must have a kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms
*It should have a roof. It can also have an attic (this doesn't count as an extra floor)
*It should have some kind of yard
Be ready to give a tour of your house(s) to Teacher Matt when you present
*Complete the classical and modernist architecture worksheet and upload it to Google Drive
*Draw pictures of a modernist and classical post office as required above
*Design a modernist and/or classical house and fulfill the requirements above.
*Present everything to Teacher Matt
*Teacher Matt is grading out of a possible 10 Diamonds for Excellent Work for this project.
