UK | New beginning

Starting a new semester of design... in another country.
I am currently studying at the University of Brighton in the UK.
So far it has been an interesting move, finding classes, moving in a new flat (soon to be moving again), and learning the ways of British education. But it's honestly been great so far.
We have gotten our first assignment on the first day of out studio class (Tuesday)
Julie and I outr being plopped into the middle of the year, so basically we are starting on Project 6.
Mapping Brighton:
Documenting through photography, video/film, drawing, text or symbols the category of information I have drawn from a hat (Tower Blocks) I am now to gathering information about these tower blocks within a two mile radius of the 'Clock Tower' in central Brighton. I will record this information, find links about the subject and create a large format folded map sheet, chart, interactive piece, or short film.

I have currently gathered information about these residential tower blocks, including height, number of flats within, location, a list of completed, proposed, and canceled constructions of these tower blocks, and history about how they were created.
More to come.
