Varndean College Students Design a New Aircraft Hangar for Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport
Varndean College 3D Design students, Lucy Adlam and Eleanor Amey, both 18 and previously from Downlands School, have produced superb, eye-catching design models for a new aircraft hangar to replace the existing dilapidated structure at Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport.
Their designs are just two out of a 15 piece exhibition of Varndean College work being held in the airport terminal from Saturday 30 June to Sunday 8 July (Tuesday to Saturday 8am – 8pm, Sunday and Monday 8am – 6pm). The students were greatly influenced by the classic art deco contours of the terminal building and artefacts range all the way from modernistic chairs to knives and forks in the shape of propellers. Entry is free and all are welcome.
While Eleanor’s hangar follows the supporting lines of the existing structure, Lucy’s fits her planes into pods on a revolving wheel reminiscent of the London Eye.
3D Design tutor, Belinda Coyne said, “It was great to work with a ‘hypothetical live’ brief from the Airport. They allowed us free access and the opportunity to present student work for the public to see. It has provided many of the students with high quality portfolios which have underpinned their successful applications to study architecture at university.”
