BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design

Alice Ellis-Hayle

The Future tree is a product designed to enhance a common counseling technique, Used in many different programs and therapies. The tree is used to contain personal aims, goals and improvements for the individual.

My project being aimed at teenagers, engaging them in these sorts of activities has always been a challenge. Creating the tree to be three dimensional, the design is for the pupil to assemble, paint and store their bird box. Allowing throughout the program to update, change and complete these wishes. The Tree storing up to 8 plywood bird boxes, the boxes can be re-used but also the boxes are functional and can be used as a bird box outdoors.
