Tutorial Response

Following this weeks tutorial and something of which I was already aware of, I need to be more critical in terms of the architectural intervention I am introducing to the BT tower and wha the aims and definition of my project are. I should look to reduce the scale and bulky interventions of the sketches and collages above into something much more elegant, transparent

Other key considerations I will need to look at are the critical points the new structure begins to interweave with he existing structure and how its parasitic nature almost grows off it and how the new structure deals with the ground level. After all, the architecture is required to have a high  level of security and defined access points. I should begin to define what I will be using the existing structure for and what the purpose of the new addition is and the nature of the symbiotic intervention. 

Materiality and digital security are also of paramount importance to the design and in the coming weeks I should  begin to focus my ideas.
