    Later in the year, during the main assignment of the course (as described on the previous page) the students participated in a competition which led to the design and construction of two free standing walls measuring 2,5X2,5X2,5 meters each.
    Through the course of the projects, the students had to deal with team work, construction detailing, time and budget management.
