International start for UCA Degree Shows
Ebbsfleet International hosted a pioneering architecture exhibition by students from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) at Canterbury.
Guy de Montfort and Daniel Cohen, who are studying for a Graduate Diploma in Architecture, offered their ideas for the regeneration of the Ebbsfleet Valley which included building a Formula One Grand Prix circuit and championing a bio-fuel industry.
Their exhibition Ebbsfleet Redefined, held on 26 &27 April, was the first of this Spring's Degree Shows, which annually showcase the creative talent at UCA.
Guy de Montfort said: "We thoroughly enjoyed showing our work at Ebbsfleet International. A train terminal is not the usual place for an exhibition but it was great to have so many people see our work and to discuss our ideas with the public, who gave us some fantastic comments and feedback."
Wendy Spinks, from HS1 the owners of Ebbsfleet International, said: "The exhibition was a great opportunity for local people to see what can be achievable in the wider redevelopment of the Ebbsfleet Valley.
"High Speed 1 is very pleased to host this exhibition from local students who may one day be responsible for the regeneration of the exciting area surrounding Ebbsfleet International."
Daniel Cohen's 'patchwork city' called for a diverse range of programme identities at various locations, while Guy proposed a hybrid masterplan where residential, leisure and commercial developments were built within Ebbsfleet Formula One Race Circuit, which could host the British Grand Prix.
Various UCA degree shows will take place at UCA's campuses and in London over the spring.
