An ambitious and inspirational design for a new public space and community pavilion at the recreation ground on the edge of Gamlingay’s playing fields and adjacent to the Community Centre (see our Eco-Hub Project here at www.civicarchitects.co.uk/gamlingay-eco-hub-community-centre).
The young people worked with civic Architects to come up with a core set of design principles. They have used gaming software to study how the outcome will look from all angles and perspectives, reflecting how other users of different ages and interests will see it. And above all they have looked at improving the quality of the whole space rather than at making piecemeal changes. Deborah Fox, Head of Standards and Best Practice, CABE. CABE Space selected the Forward Gamlingay! Youth design project from over 200 other proposed case studies, as a leading example of a public space project where the community is the client.
