Our Designing Nature at Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve project involved local pupils working with conservationists, architects and designers to conceptualise a structure for the reserve.
The aim of this project was to enhance the knowledge and understanding of local communities about the wildlife on their doorstep – and to promote awareness of biodiversity through a participatory design process.
Led by one of our delivery partners, Kent Wildlife Trust, pupils worked with conservationists, architects and designers through a series of workshops and site visits at Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve to work up design concepts for an accessible and iconic interpretation, observation and discovery structure.
These concepts will form the basis for a build project that will be delivered as a separate element outside of the Darent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme. The designs were exhibited at Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve during summer 2019 alongside the plans for the new visitor centre. The document below provides a useful summary of the project and the gallery showcases a selection of images of the workshops, models produced and the exhibition.
