Let the action begin! We kicked off our action week with a bang by introducing the project goals and plans for the upcoming weeks. It was the perfect time to welcome our new members and get everyone up to speed on what we needed to achieve. We started things off with a fun and engaging ice-breaking session that helped us get to know each other better and build a strong sense of teamwork.
The action week plans were laid out, and we were excited to dive into the tasks and milestones that would get us closer to our project goals.
It was an exciting start to our action week, and we couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish together as one big team!

We ventured out to two outdoor spaces in Castlefield to seek inspiration and precedents for our project; Castlefield Bowl and Castlefield Viaduct
It was a refreshing change of pace, and it gave us the opportunity to see firsthand how different outdoor spaces are designed, utilized and repurposed.
And with that, we wrapped up an exciting and productive Day 1!

| DAY 02 |
As we prepare for an upcoming site visit, our team has diligently conducted a preliminary site analysis and research. Our objective was to gain a thorough understanding of the site's condition and any challenges that may arise when dealing with its structures.
Leveraging the diverse skillsets within our team, the MArch and MLA students collaborated to create a topography model of the site. Simultaneously, the BAs worked on a desktop analysis of the site, ensuring that we have a comprehensive view of its unique characteristics. Through our collaborative efforts, we were able to obtain a holistic perspective of the site, allowing us to make informed decisions and take calculated next steps.
We're excited to bring this level of detail to our site visit and to witness firsthand how our analysis will translate on-site!
