D4 – Site Selection

With the intention of exploring the concepts of ‘time’ and ‘place’ through architecture in this academic year, the site was crucial in ensuring that I can develop a scheme that responds to this theme. I have chosen the grounds of St. Botolph’s Priory in Colchester, highlighted in green below and located south of the ancient walled Roman city.

I have carried out initial site documentation and research, the next step is to develop my project brief and define the user group for a more focused approach to the project.
