A Meeting of Minds

The Buxton Pavilion project has now culminated in an exhibition called “A Meeting of Minds”. This has been a collaborative project between Architecture students from Derby University, Buxton Junior School, an architect and engineer from Spaces into Places and Babbling Vagabonds. The exhibition is of drawing and models by the students when they were asked to design a community pavilion for Buxton.
There are hopes that this is the first stepping stone in realising a community pavilion that can be built and used for next years Buxton International Festival…so watch this space for developments.
