Description
As part of our 2017/18 research theme discussing the infrastructural implications of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union, the school has launched an international architecture competition entitled 'Brexit Monuments'.
The Eurotunnel (providing rail services connecting London to Paris and Brussels), constructed between 1988 and 1994 is an important example of european infrastructural co-operation that emerged from a political ideologue that appears to become increasingly distant, or even impossible to imagine today.
'Brexit Monuments' proposes an architectural engagement with this particularly loaded political issue, a monument to Brexit, located next to the Channel Tunnel entrances in either (or both) France or the UK and visible to travellers using the Eurostar service between London and Paris.
