Dark Room


A fully enclosed Dark Room developed by Design + Make students as part of their Term 1 introductory studios.

Students began their work from an inherited primary structure - a full scale laminated timber model of Le Corbusier’s Dom-Ino House (1914-15) developed for the 2014 Venice Bienalle by AA’s Valentin Bontjes van Beek. With a condensed time frame, a design strategy was initiated whereby a large oversailing roof plane would first be constructed to offer protected work on site, while the careful design of an insert was fully resolved. The final structure contains both a dark room for developing and a light room to spend time in. Its commpletion enabled the undertaking of a number of exciting short programs with students looking into analog photographic techniques.
