My Final crit of fourth year didn’t feel like a successful one. I worked hard in the run up to it, but all along I felt like it was too little too late. My attention had been taken up by the private project I’m working on and Kingston Hill proposals have not developed at the rate the should have. This left me unhappy with the work I displayed and subsequently not able to explain my scheme properly.
The external critics commented that the scheme was ‘a disappointing end to the route along the wall’ and taking the time to step back and look at the western elevation – I agree.
I’d been too focused on attempting to resolve the plan and keep the facade modest that, arguably, the most important elevation had become a blank stone wall a view that was approached by over 50 metres of open space above the listed wall.
On the positive side I know where I need to focus…
