We started off with an ice-breaking session where we introduced everyone to the project and we carried out a site visit. We are proposing to do initial sketches of the exhibition and then complete a digital model of the design.

RYEBANK FIELDS HISTORY!
Ryebank Fields has a rich history which we have shown in our poster that goes back to the 1600s and continues to the present day. It is good to know the history of the site as it raises awareness of the importance of the land to the community.

DAY 2 ACTIVITY!
The second day is complete. We started off by sharing precedent studies of the potential exhibition spaces. We then Split them into 4 groups allowing them to design initial sketches, leading them to generate a final proposal. The proposal included requirements and special features that would be relevant I. the exhibition. After presenting the ideas we discussed the pros and cons which allowed us to move forward into choosing a final proposal.

DAY 6 ACTIVITY!
We started the day off by collecting boots and gloves from the Chatham building. Some of the team met on-site and some at the MMU campus. When everyone reached the site we gave an introduction and the target for the day, Stephen then showed us where all the tools were. First, we cleared the site by removing wood, the extra crates, scrap wood, and a really heavy piano. We completed the base of the exhibition by detaching crates to create a smaller base, we then secured the base and addressed any safety hazards. We then started assembling the walls by securing them to the base and bracing them using scrap wooden panels.
