Mapping out the city

Mapping out the city

Interested in Architecture and the palimpsest of the city, students from RGS and Dame Allan's were guided around Newcastle upon Tyne by Master of Architecture students from Northumbria University and their lecturer Sebastian Messer. We sketched the city, photographed the 'character' of the city and learned about its shifting city centre; from the medieval Bigg Market to the delights of the new entrance to Eldon Square!

On our return to RGS we mapped our route and our learning onto a giant map of the city!
