Situated in proximity to the Folkestone enterance to the Eurotunnel at Ceasar’s Camp (A site of important English heritage). The site stands perched at a pivotal point overlooking the eurotunnel complex and transport links. Through three primary principles the scheme aims to provide an evolving landscape that adapts and represents Post-Brexit Britain & Post-Brexit Europe. These principles are Scalability – Usability – Flexibility; setting an example for the rest of the project to run.
The scheme follows a linear design process, that does not end with the intervention. Like politics in the West, decisions are made democratically, in succession based on the context of current affairs, economy, technology and necessity.
With the intervention acting as a living monument to the socio-political implications of Brexit, we took a similar approach, based around the principles previously defined. By creating a hollow and fragile framework primarily from the technology of a simple single joint. The infrastructure is passed on to the newly formed Paris School of Architecture. An active curriculum to design, manipulate and build to the theme of Post-Brexit history as it unfolds. This introduces students to the social and political nature of architecture whilst providing education in design, construction, wider-infrastructure and history.
