MLA1 Topographical Models


Following the visit to Rivington Terraced Gardens near Bolton, Lancashire, MLA1 were tasked with working in groups to create a topographical model of the site. The project was intended to develop an understanding of how designed landscapes work on the psyche in real life and translate this experience into physical representations of the landscape. The aim was to produce models which were geographically accurate showing masses/voids, structural elements, important visual connections, focal points and the location of all original architectural elements, at scale of 1:1000.
