Group 38

The group had a meeting on the 15 of February to discuss the design concept and the required outputs. In this meeting we discussed the site visit we had last week and started drawing some initial sketches, we had a talk about the materials we are thinking of using, we also considered reflecting the historical aspect of textile industry in Nelson on our design and we have an idea on how to incorporate that in the design, which will be taken further throughout the design process.

May 9, 2024: Tapestry Workshop

After immersing ourselves in the essence of the site and its surroundings the previous day, we embarked on an exploration of Nelson City's rich textile heritage. Our goal is to create a design that pays homage to the city's textile history. The resulting tapestry incorporates a collage of the history of Nelson and the textile industry, colored fabric samples, and landscape elements. This allowed us to understand the city better and establish a visual of Nelson's textile heritage, which is the driven inspiration of our design.

May 10, 2024: Design Review with In-Situ

Today, BA and MLA students had the opportunity to meet with our collaborator, Calum from In-Situ. During our meeting, we presented our design proposal along with the design process, emphasizing its direct link to Nelson's heritage, which was shaped through our extensive research. Calum provided valuable feedback, drawing upon previous projects, insights into the city, and outlining the primary objectives of the organization.

May 13, 2024: Design Development

We started the day by reviewing the feedback provided by our collaborator last week and outlining the main points to consider. Following this, we individually began developing the concept. Later, we had a brief discussion to share our progress, evaluate the proposed ideas and determine the direction for the final design—whether to select one idea or combine elements from various concepts.

After lunch, we split into two groups to create a set of proper architectural drawings for the developed design.
