Friday 21st March, 30 people attended the opening evening of ‘The Observatory’ at The Salt House, West Bay. Mark Drury – SPUD Principal Associate gave a interesting illustrated talk, highlighting SPUD’s successful ongoing project ‘The Exbury Egg’ as well as an introduction to ‘The Observatory’.
Mark talked about the, almost, overwhelming international response to the competition brief, and the potential opportunities for research, development and community involvement in and around the four proposed sites.
On Saturday 22nd March over 70 visitors engaged with the competition entries, many taking the opportunity to comment and vote for their ‘top 3’ favourite proposals.
