A new brief was given out on Friday 24th October and once again the Landscape students all trundled gleefully down to Greenhithe.
It was an incredibly bright day. I took the opportunity to photograph, catalogue and explore...

"All the things that dragged me here are tangled up around the pier"
-suffused with an orange glow, bi-sected by the bridge-
smiled its hello.
I ran to greet her, to stretch my aching limbs.
I ran to the prow to steer the ship home.
"SO THIS IS ENGLAND! WONDERFUL, MAGICKAL ENGLAND!"
A solitary Eddie Stobart crawled across the bridge.
My shoe fell in the water. It slipped off.
I, fearing mother's anger,
and engulfed with shame
at arriving in my new country
with one shoe off and one shoe on
Jumped into the dark water..
And so the ship that brought me here
left me tangled up, beneath the pier.

We were provided with three different images from the built environment. Our task was to prepare two designs to fill the gap between two buildings. Whilst we were free to pursue whichever avenues of research we desired- and were expected to record such journeys, alongside initial idesas, in our sketchbooks- the final image had to be produced in photoshop and graphic elements had to be introduced from provided images.
However, these experiments did help to practice some of the techniques picked up in the class.
As has been stated: we were expected to keep a full record of the design processin our sketchbooks- which was assessed alongside our final prints.
The programme of study for Year 1, Term 1 BA Landscape Architecture is composed of the following courses:
Basic Landscape Design
Design and Communication I
Hard and Soft Materials I
Postings relating to assignments will be coded in accordance with the nature of the assignment eg. my work for the Design and Communication photoshop Lab will be posted as
BA LArch DCI- Photoshop Assignment
I will try to post them as I hand them- but please be warned, I will backdate late postings so I have an accurate record of my work!
