Do you know Harrenhal from Highgarden or The Eyrie from Pyke?

To celebrate the first episode of the final series of Game of Thrones on HBO here is part one of my nudenotes on 'Game of Thrones Architecture' (mainly castles).

I wonder how many will be left standing by the end of the season?

I will be posting a Game of Thrones content every Monday for the next few weeks.

Stay tuned for more.

Now, how many of your briefs have this much clarity in?

Hopefully these notes will guide you in developing the best creative brief possible.
