WONDER WORKSHOP #07
: Ryo Ishikawa
Let's once again immerse ourselves in the realm of creativity that defines ISHIKAWASAMBO’s Wonder Workshop! In this exciting journey, our young participants embarked on an exploration of the more technical yet delightful aspects of interior design. The creation of models, an ambitious and diverse undertaking, isn't solely reserved for architects; these representative tools captivate a wide range of enthusiasts. The allure of miniatures and the stories they unveil about our world appeal to all ages and purposes.
Centered around the theme "Watashi no heya, Boku no heya" (translated as "My Room, My Room"), this workshop encouraged our young participants to craft the rooms of their dreams. The involvement of parents added an extra layer of enjoyment, fostering a bonding experience. Not only did the end products showcase their creativity, but they also doubled as summer vacation assignments – tangible creations to proudly present once school resumed.
This time, we challenged ourselves to create 1/20 scale models with the theme of "My Room, Your Room." The base of the room is a 3mm thick polystyrene board box measuring 20 cm wide, 15 cm deep, and 12 cm high. We then finished the floor, walls, and ceiling with real building materials such as wallpaper, vinyl sheeting, and tiles, or our favorite materials such as colored paper and masking tape. Finally, we added furniture and appliances such as beds, sofas, and TVs to complete the models. The variety of works, such as rooms with large TVs and sofas, and rooms with hammocks, were all filled with each individual's ideals and were all beautifully done!
