The Lincoln story

The first project I was given at Lincoln was to study the buildings on a route from the cathedral back to the architecture block. As well as drawing sketches and taking photos we were to think about the enviroments social, sustainability, practicality, condition, beauty and sustainability. We did this as a part of a group (alpha 2), at the end of the two weeks of collecting all of our work we were to present it in a crit in front of some of oour lecturers and peers.

 Also pinned up was our own work that took a part of lincoln and change it. I chose steep hill as I thought it was very steep (hence the name) and very slippy, this must cause problems in the winter months, especially for older and disabled people. This lead me on a design to create steps on the east side of the road cutting into the steep hill to create steps clad with the cobbles. The red brick wall shall be used to create a hand rail from protruding bricks.

Our first Crit went well with the lecturers comenting on a caring for social aspects of architecture as well as the detail our group has gone in to.
