Designing During this unit’s worth of work, I've learnt that I prefer doing more physical work rather than the designing part of this project. For my design, I thought about the convenience for accessing each room from different parts of the house and how rooms could be connected. I based my design on what kind of people would live there.
Changes I probably would have changed the design to make it more of a home where friends could visit. I would also change the bedroom to be an actual bedroom and not the main area for accessing all the other rooms.
Learning This unit of work has made me think more environment friendly and eco friendly whenever I'm doing something and how something as simple as a container house could be a good liveable house, and how anything could be recycled and built into something useful. It has also made me understand more about how a design is very important before making anything. It makes you feel relaxed that you won't make an error, for example dimensions, because when I was drawing lines on my wall to cut out, I made many mistakes.
Sustainability Compass My design is very sustainable and economically sustainable because it uses recycled container shipping boxes and make them into a home. This prevent any dumping of the containers into the ocean, which causes pollution. The design is made so that the couple who lives in the house can enjoy it. In other words, I believe that my design is sustainable because it is not too big or too small for two people but it still has plenty of room and space to feel not constrained.
Organisation For this unit, I was not very organised. I managed to finish all the given tasks, but not with my best effort. I often forgot to bring the sheets which meant I had to either start again or go on with another job. I could have improved my time management by trying to motivate myself and tell myself that when I finish designing, I will be able to get to the making of this. I learned that I shouldn’t leave things until last and never underestimate a task.
My Big Question During this unit, I learned that being sustainable and environmentally supportive is important. I also learned that most things can be recycled. I mean who knew that these shipping containers could be recycled and made into a home. So my big question for this unit of work is "why is sustainability so important".
