MSA Live begins! The team is finally complete and we were able to meet the BA1 & BA2 Students. We introduced them to the brief, the site, and what we plan to do over the next two weeks.
For some of the students, this was the first time they had been exposed to applications such as Paragraph 79. We took them through the project slides and a tour of the model to gain a better understanding of the innovative technologies they will be researching during the project.
Finally, we split into 3 sub-groups:
- Energy Conservation
- Energy Generation
- Energy Storage
The students will be diving into these 3 sub-groups, researching innovative technologies that could benefit the ‘Little Rissington’ Project.

To get the creative juices following, the students were asked to draw something they’ve been staring at for the past year working from home! There were some great sketches from city views to blue cheese dip and breadsticks.

Over the past few days, the students have been working in smaller sub-groups, researching innovative methods that might benefit Little Rissington. We all came back together this morning to relay what each group had found.
The Miro session was great! It allowed all the students to interact and comment on each other's findings. It also allowed us to see any overlaps in the sub-groups. The students will finalise the research tomorrow, in preparation to start creating visual content for Ecospheric next week.

A great talk, and a really interesting Q&A from our guests Sara & Jeremy this afternoon.
They gave a great insight into Passivhaus Design, through their years of experience and the live projects they are currently working on. Hopefully, this is valuable knowledge for the students to consider when designing future studio projects!

Today we had a Diagram Tutorial from George.
As the students have been modelling and drawing for their diagrams, we took the opportunity to bring all of the work today in a cohesive style. Some of the students hadn't used programs like illustrator before so George took them through a quick masterclass. The students also learn't how to export drawings into Adobe software, to create crisp clean diagrams.
Each Energy Group then went into their break out space to answer any further questions, before finalising their diagrams!
