We asked them to be quite objective, as if they were doing a feasibility study before briefing architects. This way, they can discover what the sites are capable of in density and urban impact. There was a good mixture of sound calculated proposals and a little bit of what we call emotional intuitive response ideas.
DNC and Mani Lal as tutors.

Monday 22 Jan 2018: we concluded the semester with a Powerpoint of the six schemes, and were very highly pleased with the results. The students will hand in their portfolios on Thursday of this week. The work we have done has no precedent, so a considerable amount of ingenuity and invention was required. More detailed images of the final panels will be posted on the blog quite soon.

Later in the evening, I had to do a lecture to the Cafe Scientific, Tall Buildings in just 25 minutes. I had a 20 slide lecture, with six bonus slides to help answer the questions which came later. I must do the same lecture again today to 1st year undergraduates over 50 minutes, so will use it but add another six bonus slides to include more of the questions that I was asked in the evening.
