Straw Bale Build Design Foundations Exercise Group 2

Better weather today so we decided to do a lesson in building foundations. The exercise is to create a self supporting structure using only 2 found materials in the garden. Flowerpots and bamboo canes.

The lesson learnt was to use the big pots at the bottom to create strong support, adding the smaller. lighter building materials to the foundations in a equally weighted and balanced formation.

The canes were unnecessary in this structure.
But were essential in this one……. This can now be translated to the ‘build’ as we now know about the essential nature of foundations

Well done guys!
