After many weeks of work the first years have come to the end of their urban strategy and master planning projects.This has marked the first time many of us have undertaken master planning work or projects on such a large scale, and definitely been a learning experience. It was interesting to see how the different groups had approached the brief and how some groups had gone in a similar direction to some of the current council plans whilst others went against it. We also had to produce videos for each other explaining what are projects were about, some of these being more effective than others. Overall this term has resulted in some very different and interesting master plans and urban strategies and it will be good to see what specific buildings people do within these next term. In the meantime the first years are taking a well deserved couple of weeks off.
