Examples of students' "dream home" projects from Professor Harrington's Three-Dimensional Design class

What would your dream home look like? Students in Rich Harrington’s ART 106: Introduction to Three-Dimensional Design course explored this concept in depth, and their creations are now on display in the Library atrium on the SUNY Broome campus.

Students were each given the same pre-made cardboard box and, through a process of defining the characteristics of their ideal living space, were required to construct a model of their dream home. Certain architectural details including windows, doors, a two-car garage and a chimney were required. The style of the home was left to the students’ interpretation based on research they conducted of various architectural periods and styles.

Each student was also required to situate their dream home on a scaled plot of land. The requirement here was to include a social gathering area and landscaping of their choice. Optional additions were pools, ponds and gardens. The location of their home was also left up to the students including urban, suburban, rural, coastal, etc. Materials to be used were open with the focus being on recycled/reused materials.

The student work will be on display through Friday, May 17, 2019.
