Where to Make a Tree House?

View ACE Site 2009-2010 in a larger map

REMEMBER that you have a (2) part assignment over the Holiday Break

Visit the sites on the map above. Taking photographs, sketching, etc will help you choose the best site for the project. Should the site be Urban or Natural? Or can it be both?

Read and understand the brief about the project and make an idea collage. Below is a link to a pdf document with and explanation of an idea collage and examples.

We will be voting on the site at the next meeting after the break. Incorporating your favorite site into you collage will help you present and make your best case argument to the rest of the group.
