MArch students visited the Hulme Community Garden Centre in order to get a specification of plants which are most suitable to use in an outdoor area.
We were consulted to specifically work with evergreen plants due to their weather resistane and overall lifespan. Together with BArch students, we decided on flowers to set a potential order for.

The living wall design was considered during the firstthree days in the beginning of our Events 2019. We wereinvolved in a Design Workshop which aimed to bring everyone’s ideas for the design of the living wall.Students were split into groups and then were given directions to improve designs by taking into account factors such as lifespan, esthetics, cohesion and cost.

For the task, students were asked to produce individual posters for the event. To achieve high quality and cohesive design of posters, students were presented and asked to follow design guidelines which relate to Hatch. The posters will be printed, sticked around campus and used to address the final day of our Events 2019 which willalso be the opening of our seating installation at Hatch.

We led a design workshop where students had now Tyne opportunity to amend their proposed design ideas taking into consideration durability, time and cost. Together, we finalised the design of the instagram board by picking up ideas from each group. We spent the day by having an open discussion, presenting to each other, sketching and visiting the workshop.
Additionally, we confirmed who is taking participation in which team: Graphics, Marketing and Construction.

We met at 10 am with all students part of Group L. It was an exciting moment for all of us. We started the morning by introducing each other and then the project itself. After that we split Y1 and Y2 students into groups in which they started thinking about designs for our feature “instagram” board. Following that students had 5 minutes time per group to introduce their idea in front of everyone.
In the afternoon we went on site to Hatch on Oxford Road and showed the bachelor students where our project will be located. Together we had a discussion and considered developing the ideas from the morning.

MArch students met on site with Bruntwood representatives twice last week to discuss final layout for the seating installation and its location within Hatch. The project manager and the quantity surveyor expressed concerns about the height of the seating installation which we intend to address by minor tweaks in the design. The possibility of neon signage and painting was also brought up. After the meetings, MArch students finalised the cost plan together with an updated design proposal and sent it for approval to the collaborators.

Before getting in touch with our prospect collaborators, we visited their site, so that we assess the potential of the space. Overall, we liked Hatch as it has a great amount of area which would give us more flexibility in our design.
