The giant shoes room

This idea has been made real

The bonkers idea for the Giant Shoes room was invented by Chen, age 9, as a place for clowns to live and play! Brought to life by a group of Manchester School of Art Students, in the form of this detailed scale model!

It even opens up to show you the furniture inside!

But the students didn't stop there! They used the Giant Shoes Room to inspire their own interior space! The results are fantastic

We went down to the wood workshop and worked out how the skeleton is going to look and fit together. Hopefully it stands up!

We spent some time looking at how we are going to construct the shoe using cardboard and paper. Loads of fun!
