Hi all.

April 30, 2009

I apologise for being unable to attend the past two classes. I’ve been extremely sick with bronchitis.

Anyway I’ve been doing some research on different styles that we can adapt into our park design;

Here’s some work by metalworks artist, Shawn Lovell. She’s amazing and I think her style would work well for the fencing around the park…

This style would also be a nice influence for railings, tables, chairs etc.

I’ve been working on play equipment designs and I’ll post them when they’re complete.

Peace out

was thinkin of interviewing the people who live in the large pink house that has been restored opposite hollis park. That house has been put under herritage listing and i think interviewing the people and finding out why they wanted to restore it and what history they know of the area might be a nice human interest piece for our proposal and it also explores the reasons behind why we are redesignin the park the way we are.

what you guys think?

im gonna try and get in contact with the owners and set up an interview

also if anyone is trying to get to hollis park the closest station in Mcdonnaldtown. its about a 1 min walk up the hill.

just to make things a lil easier 🙂

hope your all havin a nice weekend
