13th March: Events Meeting
On 13th of March we met with Tom Jefferies to discuss more details about the brief for the charrette day, the number of participatory universities at the event, the tutors from MSA available to judge the event and the revised promotional poster for circulation to the schools of architecture participating in the 2018 charrette. The meeting proved to be very constructive and fruitful.
