Student Designers get involved in design Workshop to help vision the Active Landscape
Cambridge KickstART and BlockBuilders, an organisation that uses Minecraft to engage young people in their local community and environment, ran a workshop at Chesterton Community College in December 2014. 15 eager students got involved in the free design workshop, where they created interactive digital landscapes to help influence public art ideas for the new housing development at Cambridge City FC’s former site.
Detailed design workshops were also held at Chesterton Communtiy College in collaboration with CEDAR (the Centre for Diet and Activity Research ) to explore options for the specific design of the Active Landscape once this concept was being developed with Murdoch Wickham Landscape Architects. Students explored different exercise and game configurations to stimulate the key activity areas inspired by the footballing origins of the site -Strength, Stamina and Suppleness.
