Day 2: Case Studies and Sketching Concepts

This Morning, we challenged students to find some case studies they thought were similar to the brief. Each student presented their findings, then we had a discussion about what we liked and what could be improved upon.

After lunch, it was time for a sketching workshop. Students sketched their ideas based on relevant case studies, and implemented them onto the site through the use of perspective drawings. This was a great opportunity to visualise their design in context and led to some great discussions.

Day 3: Masterplanning the site model

After sketching some concepts in context yesterday, we started to think about how these ideas could come together in the form of a site model. This involved working on Rhino to model the existing site. This allowed us to play around with scale to figure out how big we want the physical model to be.

DAY 4: Modelmaking the Grid

Today, students furthered their designs by modelmaking their ideas onto the site. To allow everyone a chance to further their ideas together, the site was broken up into a grid, and everyone got to choose the site that worked best for them. Together they provide masterplan of intimate interventions.

DAY 5: Final Model + Detailed Design

After masterplanning the site last week, we attempted to go further into detail by choosing three sites that we would focus on. These three sites would highlight three different designs: Signage to the front roadside; solutions to the cycle container; and landscaping to the allotments.

Alongside this, a separate group formed to begin work at B15 workshop on the final model. The base has been constructed with plans to start work on the landscaping and existing context tomorrow.

DAY 6: 3D modelling and detailed design

After looking into our 3 designs in more detail yesterday we began to model them in different groups. One group chose to focus on modelling through Sketchup, whilst the other two modelled their work through Rhino and Grasshopper. This allowed the students to have a go at learning both. This workshop will continue tomorrow, when students refine their work by creating renders and detailed drawings using the software.

DAY 8: Final Renders and Publication

Before our presentation at Station South tomorrow, the team has been working together on the 3 designs to create renders and finalise the publication. At the end of the day, we went through our presentation as a group to make sure everyone had a part to say ready for tomorrow.
