The Portsmouth Elephant Cage

Designs will be presented to the public & stakeholders from this unique Anglo-Dutch architectural, landscape & engineering competition on Friday 25 Nov. from 5.00 - 7.30 at The Portsmouth School of Architecture, Eldon Building, Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth.

These designs provide a range of best practice Dutch and UK options and proposals for the Portsmouth and Southsea frontage that respond to climate change induced rises in sea level.  The work is also intended to inform and advance sea defence design strategies faced by other low lying coastal cities. Details of the competition brief maybe found here.

You are welcome to attend.

This competition is being organised by PCompass with our Dutch partners Architectuur Lokaal & the Portsmouth University School of Architecture. If you wish to organise an Elephant Cage contact Project Compass.
