Thu 27, 10.00 Old Street Roundabout

Hello and Welcome to Unit A blog!

Our first day is a visit to the study area in London.
We meet at 10.00 at Old Street Roundabout (Northern Line) - under the trees  / promenade / public realm project by Tonkin Liu.

Here is a link to download a short chapter of Jan Gehl's writing we are asking you to read in preparation.

Please bring with:
Nice sketchbook (minimum size A5) and a really good pen or soft pencil 2/3/4B (please no crappy bic-pens or super-hard 10H pencils...) your camera and an A-Z/map or equivalent (so you don't get lost).

We will stay outside all day and walk around, so dress accordingly. Lunch opportunities at whitecross street food markt. We plan to finish around 17.00 at the Barbican.

How to get there:

Travelling during rush-hour always takes longer....
