Sheppard Robson has lodged these designs for the Ashford Learning Campus, Kent, for planning permission. The new 18,000m 2 development is the first major project in the 'southern expansion quarter' of Ashford and aims to provide new teaching facilities for South Kent College. According to the practice, the form of the building - two four-storey blocks linked by a glazed atrium - is designed to evoke the motion and speed of train travel, 'linking the new campus with the railway history of Ashford'. Project director Tony Poole said: 'The intersecting and interweaving of train tracks is mimicked in the built form to produce a truly interactive learning environment. This creates a real sense of movement.' Work is expected to start on site in December 2007, with completion planned for the student intake in September 2009.
