Local Architect Stuart Page, who has studios on the Green in Langton Green, is organising a community workshop in conjunction with the RIBA, aimed at inspiring discussions about the future of Tunbridge Wells Town Centre.
With local architects’ contributions and cooperation from Royal Victoria Place’s management, the public workshop has been organised for January 26th and is already receiving enthusiastic coverage in Twitter and Facebook.
Entitled So Create A Difference, this is an opportunity for people to visualise their ideas for transforming Tunbridge Wells town centre.
Everyone will be welcome to come and draw or write down their ideas of how the town centre could look and local architects will be on hand to help present their ideas..
The location of the workshop will be a drop-in centre between The Perfume Shop and Thornton’s on the Upper Mall (the former Zoolafish premises).
Around 15 local architects are providing their visualisations for town centre sites, to inspire people. These visualisations will be on display from 23rd to 29th January in the shop window and the architects will be at the drop-in on the Saturday 26th January.
The ideas of the public and architects will then be turned into a book and presented to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.
Stuart says “We would be delighted to meet you at the drop-in, to hear your reactions to the suggestions and add any ideas that you and your family may have.
If you can visit us it would make a real difference to the success and impact of the event”.
