we started the session by doing a range of ice breaker activities in order to get to know one another better. following this we deconstructed the brief so that the new members of the group could gain a better understanding of what is expected from the project. site analysis as well as background research on For Tyldesley was conducted. we finished off the session with a collaging activity, where all members expressed their visions for the site using images that they had found in their initial research.
