Co-op Homeschool Learns Concept of Scale with MT Studio / by Tarver Siebert


Earlier this week, MT Studio invited a co-op homeschool class into our office for a lesson on city planning.  Our architectural designers, Rebecca and Hannah, put together a presentation describing the varying scales of planning from rural landscapes to city centers. The class learned the concepts of scale and context as well as transitions of the zones through an urban transect diagram. The students were able to identify the factors that create urban density, such as streets, city blocks, and mixed-use environments. At the end of their lesson, they were asked to create a fill-in-the-blank drawing to complete a city street - they did such a great job! Check out their drawings below.
