The first week of action week will allow students to prepare for the public consultation, which is scheduled for Friday 12th May. As a group, we will design engagement tasks and activities for stakeholders in Tyldesley, encouraging discussion and feedback, which we will take forwards with us into action week 2.
As a part of the preparation work, students will construct a physical model of the site which will be used during the consultation and to showcase the final design outcome at the end of week 2.
There will also be opportunity throughout the week to have software specific tutorials with the 5th year students, to improve your skills ready for week 2!

In action week 2 students will collate the findings from the public consultation and work collaboratively to produce a final design for the scheme. The outputs from this week will include a full set of drawing plans, 3D visualisations and a physical model.
We are very excited to see what you all come up with!

Day 01 - Presenting Initial Ideas

Introduction to the Ponky’s Park Project!

The day began with an icebreaker activity before the 5th years introduced the brief, the client, the site, and the action plan for the two weeks ahead.

The students then split up and began the first task which was to produce some initial sketches / images / photographs of potential design strategies, using the questionnaire feedback we have received from residents of Tyldesley prior to this action week.

The team came together at the end of this activity and presented their ideas back to the group for discussion.

Learning how to render!

This morning Sam also provided a V-Ray tutorial for the BA students. During the tutorial he demonstrated how use V-Ray, using the proposed pergola within the scheme as a test object. He described V-Ray's many parameters and ultimately showed the team how to achieve an attractive rendered image ready for the publication.
