Day 2 - SITE VISIT
Group AJ spent a day on Winter Hill, appreciating the views and taking quality photographs of the site.
Covering 10k by foot, we were inspired by the landscape, and have plenty of material to start developing the Atlas.
Many thanks to Chris Waterfield at the Woodlamd Trust for a guided tour of the grounds, we look forward to presenting our proposals to him at the end of next week!

But how can we as designers create architecture that responds to its context when it is not physically connected to the urban fabric?
How can we create a feeling of, 'place' without street signs, neighbours or landmarks?
