Every group is asked to give evidence of the research they have done so far on the structures that they have chosen to investigate.
You are asked to gather references to books and publications (or, better yet, copies of the actual publications),copies of photographic and digital images, drawings, links to video clips etc.
You are also asked to supply a simple sketch and outline of the approach your team will take to represent, in physical form, the structural principle(s) that from the basis of your chosen structures. If the model requires workshop activity, make sure to consult with David Speller about feasibility and supplies needed.
