This was our first tutored day for the Dense City project. We all presented our research in small groups, and then moved downstairs to the computer suite to make collages using microscopic imagery and our maps that we collected in our primary research. I found the fairly easy as I have done photoshop work before, and I enjoyed the task as I hadn't thought about merging the organic forms with the linear compositions of the maps. Something that stood out to me in this was how big a part of the street the historical features of the Victorian architecture is, and from looking on google maps I can see that is is heavily featured on the length of the whole street. Looking forward, I can see this is something I would have to consider when designing something for the site, however wether I would choose to contrast it or blend into it, I am not sure of.
