Curated by second year architecture students at RGU, the ‘Dee-Rail’ exhibition focuses on the dismissed Deeside Railway as an exploration of urban boundaries and social connections through one of Aberdeen’s best walks.
An urban line now travelled by pedestrians and cyclists from either West to East, it cuts the surrounding communities in two parts. Our aim is to somehow challenge this division through a series of architectural interventions along the public path, each meant to connect the North to the South through various activities which are aimed at a range of community groups.
This exhibition will showcase the individual design solutions on the seven sites located between Ferryhill and Pitfodels, with exemplary student work being physically presented while also digitally accessible via a website.
Opening between the 28th of February and the 7th of March, it will be held throughout the David Welch Winter Gardens and can be viewed at https://aberdeendeerail.weebly.com
