Design Challenge:

Design competition for the re-design of Maidstone’s High Street, and improvements to the public realm within the Town Centre. The competition is open to multi-disciplinary teams which should be led by an architect or landscape architect. Interdisciplinary collaboration is actively encouraged and other team members might include the services of a transport planner, highways engineer etc. The realized scheme will also need to include a clear public art focus. A key objective is the enhancement and distinctiveness of Maidstone as Kent’s County Town through creative and innovative use of design and public art.
