Tuesday 26: Selection of the brief.

By weighing up the positive and negatives we were able to determine which brief presented the best opportunities. Students developed ideas based on key aspects of each site. Exchange square developed significant interest concerning the IRA bomb explosion in 1996. With the 20 year anniversary arriving soon it presented an opportunity to create an atmospheric but commemorative installation.
