The Revenge of the Farm

Awards for University of Kent Architecture Students

Award-winning architecture students from Kent University picked up plaudits for their designs for a London City Farm on Saturday 10 December. Mr. Mizan Chaudhury, the Speaker of Tower Hamlets, gave prizes to three students from the Kent University School of Architecture at Canterbury.

Their designs were for a student project, which included a community centre, crafts centre, and barn, along with flower and vegetable gardens.

The first place design by Harry Insall-Reid, was titled "The Revenge of the Farm," the second place design by Oscar Walheim, "Follies among the Ruins," and the third place design by Ruxandra Gruioniou, "The Secret Garden."

Their tutor, Dr. David H. Haney (of Kent CREAte, Centre for Research in European Architecture), gave a brief illustrated talk on his own research on the history of urban agriculture. He also gave a second presentation on other farm designs by the top 17 Kent first year students from last year.

Dr. Haney gave this task to students to introduce the importance of urban agriculture and community cooperation into first year architectural education. The chair of the Farm Trustees, Bessie Venables, said that although the barn and crafts centre will soon be built by Crossrail, Farm members were impressed by the students' proposals. She added that they still might be able to incorporate some of their ideas into the new community centre design.

Honoured guests included Bob Bennett of Tower Hamlets Council who has lead responsibility for negotiations with Crossrail, and Gwyn Williams, from the Crossrail site building contractor Dragados Sisk Joint Venture, the latter who donated the total prizes worth £150. Architecture lecturer Manolo Guerci of Kent CREate, and Jessica Hodge the Farm manager were also present for the event.
