Description
The three design briefs are set in dramatically contrasting locations. By exploiting the mapping technologies available through Google Earth, participants were able to visit each location and view in detail the surrounding landscapes, drawing on the influence of individual topography and visual statement to fire ideas and to develop first stage design.
Rewarding finalists' success in the selection rounds, each of the finalists have been given, before the final, a Sony VAIO Professional notebook loaded with Google SketchUp software to complete their designs and presentations.
