Fieldwork in Pyrmout – urban change using augmented reality

The fieldtrip is structured as a self-guided small group field visit with a briefing and debriefing session on the day.
Students use the augmented reality app, Aurasma, to overlay archival photographs over the contemporary urban environment.

Students observce urban change and are invited to reflect on the processes behind the changes they observe (e.g. deindustrialisation; gentrification; urban consolidation; functional change in the urban environment).

Students take photos of evidence they find of urban change.
This then forms the basis of discussion.
