Pay Inn Display is up and running! After brief good mornings and introductions we started the day off with some ice breaker activities to get to know each other better. In line with the focus of our project, we began with an architecture based pub quiz.
MArch students then took BA and MLA students through the week’s programme and gave background information on our collaborator Grizedale Arts and the focus of the project; the Farmer’s Arms.
Once this was complete we introduced various research methods and split into groups to begin the basis of our research. After combing through online resources we met and discussed key topics, themes and information we had found, and planned how to take these forwards in line with our planned outcomes for the end of the week. We are focussing on the themes of; The Valley; The People, The Building and the Context.

We kicked off today with a talk from our external guest speaker, Evelyna Hadass. Evelyna studied an Architecture BA but has worked in both architecture and graphic design. The talk and Q&A gave great examples of how work can be presented, in preparation for our presentations to Grizedale Arts on Friday.
After the presentation, our two groups continued working on their proposals. Both of our teams have started to collate ideas and design through sketching and model making, whilst taking into consideration the local area and the needs of the Farmer’s Arms.
