Our next Design Studio project is based around the creation of an observation tower for Nottingham's Arboretum.
Over the next 4 weeks of the project, I will be updating the blog with precedence studies, research, designs and plans. All of this will lead up to the final design, which must be made entirely out of timber.
We must choose a set of clients for the project. For mine I have opted to focus on 'Connecting to the immediate site physically as well as to the wider environment by views for enjoyment of the landscape.' Through this, I am targeting people who are most likely in the park for the enjoyment of nature or even exploration. I will be able to let people engage with the park, and indeed the city, in a way which they may not be accustomed to.
I am excited for this project and will be beginning the research phase immediately. I will be uploading examples of inspiration which I find right here!
