Friday 15 March, GEOG2080 students gathered at NewSpace and were tasked with observing the Newcastle CBD. Their goal was to observe the Hunter Street streetscape, and then reflect on how the design may influence who and how people behave and use the area. This included observing the noises, textures, the atmosphere and what people were doing in the streetscape of their chosen observational area. These budding human geographers were asked to write down their observations, take photos and then meet back and reflect on their findings with other the students. As Michelle and I walked around we observed numerous art pieces by Rebecca Murray and the sounds, shapes and textures of the city.
Here are some images from the day;
