Today the team started off by researching, finding examples of and then discussing our projected outputs; a Zine; a string of informative Instagram posts and an exploded axonometric diagram of The Farmer’s Arms.
We had a guest talk from a visual designer, Joshua Corden of Philip Colbert Studio. The talk and Q&A gave a great insight into different styles of graphic presentation and final outputs that can be achieved, some which the team had not considered for the future outputs.

We started Day 7 by presenting the work from yesterday’s 4 site analysis groups. It was great to see a contrast between clean CAD lines (such as showing transport routes) and delicate sketches (that portrayed some key views of the site). Next, we all jumped into fleshing out our initial ideas for the concept proposals. We broke off into two groups to start mind-mapping key themes and furthering the site analysis from yesterday, in order to understand what the needs of the site are, and how our proposals might add value to the Farmers Arms. After discussing some ideas and seeing lots of fantastic sketches, we’ll now reign these in to fit into the local context and area. Tomorrow, all our students will be bringing all sorts of materials that can be found to start creating some maquettes and models to bring these ideas to life!
