In the third week we introduced the student to site analysis methods, in particular representational techniques for data and observations. Focusing first on Constraints and Opportunities plans, we showed the students some examples, we then engaged in a discussion in how successful these examples were, and what they could adapt from them. Further reflecting this on their own projects, in beginning to develop their own site plans, the students incorporated the techniques they used into their own work across the session.
