Students get to see Port of Tilbury in 3D

On a bitterly cold January day, a group of 21 lucky A-level 3D Design students from Palmer’s College visited the historic Port of Tilbury and its Grade II* listed London Cruise Terminal. The trip was organised to support course work for their A-level, where students have been asked to develop ideas for a series of site specific Architectural designs for a project set by the 3D Design teacher, Steve Sexton.

Research was gathered with the aid of Lynda Viccars, Cruise Terminal & Community Liaison Manager and the marine staff at the Port of Tilbury, allowing students to experience at first hand a working lock, whilst learning about the 125 year history and future plans for the Port; gathering valuable research into the function and existing infrastructure of the site today.

Student Ryan Christy stated that “Seeing the ships pass through the lock gave me a real sense of scale, which changed my opinion of what I could design for the space, giving me a much better understanding of its potential”.
