During Walking the City Summer School students explored the world of footwear design and construction, taking inspiration from a journey navigating the city.
Students were introduced to how trainers are made, what materials are used, where they are produced, and their history. Through hands-on exploration and practice, students took their design from 2D to 3D to make their very own pair of open trainers, created for the urban explorer.
This course introduced students to a wide range of 3D, footwear design and architectural ideas including processes like silicon casting, 2D pattern cutting and mould making, which you can expect to find on an undergraduate course at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
This was a free opportunity for 15 state school students (ages 15-18).
