  • Introduction
  • The South East Regional Design Panel reviewed the New Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury in September 2007. The Panel gave an excellent review of the scheme by Keith Williams Architects and suggested some areas of the project that needed to be explored further. The Panel - represented by Tony Ingram (meeting chair), Timothy Brittain-Catlin, Tim Gale, James McCosh, Hilary Satchwell on the day of the review - stated that it “ strongly supports the design concept, which is an imaginative response to a difficult problem. ” They suggested that if the work was well executed “ it will result in a striking transformation of the old theatre and a bold and positive presence close to the heart of the city. ” Canterbury City Council granted planning permission for the project in August 2008 and the building is currently under construction.

  • Introduction
  • We ran two Spaceshaper events for the Renewal Group - one for adult stakeholders and one, using Spaceshaper 9-14 resources, for local young people. Bridgehouse Meadows is a valuable but underused green space hidden away in southeast London and a key asset within the Surrey Canal major regeneration scheme. The workshops formed part of Renewal Group's Surrey Canal public consultation programme. Spaceshaper provided a tool to find out the views of local people about the space and identify its key strengths and weaknesses. Results showed that despite its lack of use the Bridgehouse Meadows space is much valued by the local community as a rare green space in a built up area.
  • An exciting, special workshop with young people from the African Caribbean Forum in Gravesham. Part of a second phase of Spaceshaper 9-14, where young people across the UK are trained to help Spaceshaper Facilitators in live workshops. A growing area of work through which Kent Architecture Centre is encouraging youth mentoring and citizenship. Those who took in the workshop said that it was a really great experience - it was fun.
  • In January we ran an introductory session and practical workshop on Spaceshaper for 40 people from Denmark, Finland and Sweden.Spaceshaper was enthusiastically received, as one of the organisers explained: “ What fascinated me about Spaceshaper is that it really filled in a need I have been looking to fill for several years. It is technically smart, it is based on knowledge about how people communicate and it is also very open-minded – in the sense that it gives people the inspiration to speak out, to answer and to participate in the exercises. I think the system shows very big respect towards citizens and I think it’s fantastic that you can have a tool that works both for adults and for 9-14 year olds – that’s really amazing.” Other participants spoke about the value of Spaceshaper in collecting evidence to support funding bids and presentations to decision-makers. We are now discussing the development of a Nordic version of Spaceshaper.
  • In July Kent Architecture Centre facilitated a day of Spaceshaper events looking at the centre of Pulborough in West Sussex. Pupils from the local primary school took part in a Spaceshaper 9-14 workshop, exploring and mapping key features in the centre of the village and making suggestions for improvements. The afternoon workshop for councillors, local business representatives and members of the community included a walkabout and provoked some lively debate and a wide range of ideas and suggestions. This is an example of where Spaceshaper has brought together the community - and locals and traders found that they wanted the same things.
  • In August we ran a Spaceshaper Workshop for the RSPB at Cliffe Pools Reserve in Medway. Sixteen people, reflecting a range of interests in the local area, attended and took part in site visits to key areas. Recurring themes emerged from the workshop questionnaires - generating ideas to improve the area without encroaching too much on the beautiful environment. New signs (including Braille), extra wardens and a 'meet and greet' service are being put in place, improving the areas which showed most need.
  • This year's programme built on the previous five years' work - developing a question card toolkit based on the framework of the Design Quality Indicators. This is a toolkit to be used by students, teachers and governors to help them to understand the range of design issues involved in improving, refurbishing or renewing a school's buildings and grounds. An article was published in Building Futures magazine for the Education Building Design Officers' Group and we delivered an interactive workshop for delegates at the Group's conference in November 2010, demonstrating how the toolkit works. The second element of this year's programme was the development of a supplementary toolkit, looking specifically at sustainable design issues. Planting the SEAD is a set of 24 Eco-Active Design Challenges that schools might consider as they aim to improve their buildings, outdoor spaces, local relationships and students' well-being.
  • GREEN DAY - FUN TIMES, SERIOUS LESSONS We worked with CABE to promote Green Day - a fantastic way to make schools more sustainable. Green Day will inspire teachers and pupils to learn more about climate change and how it relates to the buildings and spaces around them. We invited teachers from more than 800 schools in Kent and Sussex to free workshops held in March at Singleton Environment Centre and Crawley Library. The workshops are part of a national series which will culminate in Green Day events run by schools after World Environment Day in June.
  • Kent Architecture Centre facilitated the appointment of East Architects to design a new community facility for the Meads neighbourhood, Sittingbourne. Working with local people in a series of interactive workshops we created a development brief for a new community centre that will bring a new focus to the under used green space adjoining the emerging neighbourhood centre. Through an invited architecture competition East Architects were selected as having responded most successfully to the qualities of the site, producing an unique and striking building that responds to the needs of the growing community.
  • PULBOROUGH VISION AND ACTION PLAN Kent Architecture Centre has been working with Pulborough Community Partnership to produce a Vision and Action Plan for Lower Street Regeneration Area, using an initial design study as the starting point for public consultation - identifying and communicating potential design approaches. Working directly with the community, we have been getting them together to discuss what they value and want, following the principle that you advocate and take the community with you. We will be providing ongoing advice and support with the final delivery plan.
  • Introduction
  • We completed this checklist toolkit to help planning officers in assessing and improving the design of residential and mixed use schemes throughout the different character areas of the Borough. We also ran two workshops - Raising the Quality of Design - for Councillors and Development Control Officers, to demonstrate how it is possible to enhance design standards and improve the quality of the environment without necessarily increasing costs.
  • We have been commissioned to deliver three design and built environment training workshops for Brighton + Hove Council officers. The first workshop - The Building Blocks - was held in March, with two more workshops to be delivered this year, on Character and on Design Assessment.
