Improving connections between Pembroke and Chatham Historic Dockyard

Last year the Medway Strategy Group challenged students from Kent School of Architecture (KSA) to suggest ways of improving connections between Pembroke (the Universities at Medway campus) and Chatham Historic Dockyard and creating a stronger sense of place at Medway.

Under the supervision of KSA colleagues Chloe Street-Tarbatt and Jef Smith, the students worked in groups over three days at the end of May 2017. It was a very interesting design challenge and the results were hugely impressive.

The students’ ideas were captured on 11 vertical freestanding banners which are on display in the Drill Hall Library until the end of term.

We would like as many Medway students and staff as possible to visit the exhibition and reflect on the students’ ideas.

We would also encourage feedback – comments can be left in the book provided.
