Branded Spaces workshop

1st year students took part in a workshop that enabled them to study the identity of London’s riverscape and skyline through observational sketches, to capture and document the unique features that determine our sense of place and belonging. The study trip started at embankment where we took a river boat to Greenwich. The first exercise required students to capture the essence of the spaces they passed as the boat was moving. This required focus and a critical approach towards the evaluation of spatial elements. Once in Greenwich, we explored the wonders and complexity of the Cutty Sark and the symbolisms presented to the public. Finally we walked all the way to the Royal Observatory where students were asked to record the splendid view of London as it was revealed to them, while focussing on the perceptual affect of the foreground, middleground and background. The weather was fabulous and it was a thoroughly enjoyable day out!
