With our deadlines approaching quickly, we are still awaiting an Urban Designer whom we have previously contacted, will be arriving in Windsor over the weekend. If everything goes well, we will start with our design process. Moreover, our team had experienced many setbacks to this project. For one, our urban designer does not reside in Windsor, so future contact may be difficult.
With all the feed back, we went from a generalized idea to a more narrowed specifics regarding this project. Thus experiencing a lot of changes to ideas. Because of this, we had to reform ideas and change our proposal countless of times and will continue to change as we investigate further.
Since this group is a two person team, both members have to fill in roles required to make this project succeed. We find ourselves multitasking interviews, data collection, animation and work with programs we were not trained for. As a team of two, we find ourselves reaching out discovering and acquiring new skills every week.
Since this project gave us a sense of growth and vast knowledge on alleyways. This is not the only thing the grew. Our friendship and freedom to communicate with each other on a informal level allowed us to be open with each other. So every group has its own problems and so did ours. As responsibility increased with measures, stress built for the both of us. But we were able to problem solve and work around them. We did not let our arguments get the better of us. We found being open is very important especially with the progress of this project.
