Today we met up with some second year architecture students to have our first casual meet. We will be working in groups of idat/architecture students from January for a few weeks coming up with interventions for a preselected area of Devonport, by the Devonport tower.
After a brief in the morning the us idat’s went to the location in the afternoon to get some shots and suss out the area. Poverty stricken, and statistically one of the most depressed areas in the UK! We were taken up the Devonport tower to get a better view (and some good snaps) to think more of the area.
Was interesting and good to go off campus I must admit! Now off to think of some intervention ideas...should be good!
