This project was our first taste of the sort of things we would be doing – at least for the first year. The brief was linked to the idea of Forgotten Spaces and how we can redevelop those spaces. It provided an opportunity to get a feel for the work and to bond as a team. Naturally selecting a site which was derelict was something most people were going to do so we tried to be a little more creative by choosing a non-derelict site. This project was not one to be assessed so we played with various ideas before finishing on this colourful shelter. In the grand scheme of things, perhaps it wasn’t the most innovative use of the space but as it was our first attempt I think it showed potential.
