For this collaboration, we will be involved in public engagement and create synergy with the community of Tyldesley to build a healthy spirit and sense of place. Students will develop skills in sketching, model making (physical and digital), Indesign, Photoshop and rendering software, valuable communication skills, organisation skills and more!

Day 02 - Brainstorming Session for the Public Consultation
Orchestrating the big day!
The second day started with a discussion and a brainstorming session of potential stakeholder engagement activities for the public consultation happening on Friday the 12th.
The students shared and exchanged ideas on ways to engage with the public, detailed out each activity, and outlined a rough schedule for Friday.

Day 02 - Site Model Assembly
Finalising the Site Model!
The students then continued working on the buildings for the site model, and assembled the pre-cut pieces before continuing with their individual design proposal.
Each student mapped out and modelled their site plan, and designed a mural at 1:50 scale to fit their schemes on the site model.

Day 03 - Physical Experimentation of the Site Elements
The modelled site elements will be used on Friday for the public consultation, where people can move the pieces around, and try out different configurations to personalise Ponky’s Park to their liking.
The scaled 3D elements will help the public to visualise endless design outcomes, site potentials and possibilities of the re-imagined park.

Day 04 - Engagement with The Stakeholders
1, 2, 3 .. Action!
At around 12 noon, the people of Tyldesley started coming in to contribute their ideas and visions for Ponky’s Park. There were a few different fun activities for engagements with the public including drawing, playing around with models, and making a word cloud.
The session lasted for about three hours and overall it was a successful and eventful day.

Day 05- Prioritising Community Feedback
The first step to designing！
After categorising the feedback, the responses were then analysed to help create a clear set of guidelines for the final design proposal. The collective responses were sorted from most to least important in order to prioritise the things that are important to the community.

Day 05- Preparing for the Final Design Proposal
The data and boundaries of the site were obtained from Digimaps, and SketchUp was used as a tool to model the data in 3D. Before concluding the day, as a collective, the team produced a sketch design scheme which reflected the findings from the community engagement activities and the online questionnaire. Tomorrow, the students will be expanding on this scheme, designing the park in more detail.
