Research and Representation 3D AutoCAD and Photoshop


Materials, Methods and Technology Topographical Model and Site Plan


Reservoir site at Writtle University College, Chelmsford. - The brief was to create a model of the current reservoir gradient, which would inform a design for a new building with a platform and paths leading down to the reservoir. The scheme includes viewing platforms and ramps.

Dynamic Site – The Salvation Army, Hadleigh Farm

An ecologically sensitive masterplan, within the Salvation Army’s training centre, at Hadleigh farm. The masterplan seeks to address environmental issues, promote farm economy and encourage visitor engagement. The design uses both photoshop and hand rendering. Section A explores brush tools within Photoshop.
