Tue 2nd Oct, 10 am | Whitechapel site visit

Hello and Welcome to Unit A blog!

Our first day is a visit to our study area in Whitechapel.
We meet at 10.00 at in front of the Idea Store Whitechapel by David Adjaye. (nearest tube Whitechapel Station, from here approx. 100 metres to your left...)

In preparation for the site visit, we ask you to read a short text by Jan Gehl, download it here:

Please bring with:
A 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 spend the day outside walking and observing - so appropriate dress and shoes essential. There will be lunch opportunities round Petticoat Lane Market (street food). We are planing to finish around 17.00
