‘So Create a Difference’ was an exhibition and community brainstorming by local architects, about ideas for the future of Tunbridge Wells. The whole community was given the opportunity to draw and write their very own visualisations.
Around 20 local architects showcased their ideas for re-imagining the town centre at a pop-up shop in Royal Victoria Place. Following the workshop, attended by at least 600 local people the architects’ and the public’s ideas and contributions will be transformed into a book and presented to senior staff and Councillors at Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.
The initiative ‘So Create a Difference’ was the idea of architects Stuart Page of Langton Green and James Galpin, Partner in Hazle McCormack Young in Tunbridge Wells. It was funded by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) West Kent Branch, which represents 300 local members and by RIBA’s Local Initiative Fund.
Furniture Hire UK supplied a range of tables and chairs at the ‘So Create a Difference’ event which were utilised at the drop-in centre for large CAD drawings as well as allowing members of the public to sit comfortably and sketch their ideas.
