In the morning, we had a meeting with our partner John Wood and the experts: Matthew Williams and Dr Jenna Ashton. In this meeting, John introduced the Friends of Baguley hall, then we discussed about the fundamental principle of heritage significance and cultural and intangible heritage.

It is a very nice meeting and we learned a lot from this!

In the afternoon, we went to our site - the Baguley Hall to have a closer look at the building. The site visit gave us further insight into the ecological and architectural situation around the site.

Today we went back into our classroom to have presentations about the site analysis and, with a huge bag of painting materials, we started to brainstorm about our proposals for the Baguley Hall.

After our site analysis day, we knew more about our site and the neighbourhood around it. Today we decided to slow down our pace and develop our proposal in groups for the whole day.
Posted 20 May 2022 12:04

After making sure what our ideas are, we started to look for more procised precedents and produce sketches and collages.
