The Stonehouse Action visit us in the gallery who are very interested in what we are doing and discussed the issues around the palace theatre. Some of us able to get into the palace theatre on a special tour.
Morning session: ARCH 409 Urban Theories and Methodologies class is held in KARST gallery. Students are separated into groups for the urban studies on Stonehouse. We are meeting at KARST gallery at 10am for Stonehouse ‘field trip’. Before heading to site walk, students from each group are meeting with their tutor to have initial discussion on the urban studies and methodologies to be used on the site. Each group presents on their studies and observations after the walk. The outcomes of today initial site urban study are beneficial and interesting because every group has different research on Stonehouse. Students are encouraged to visit the site at several timing for more detail and accurate surveys on the specific research.
