MK Architectural Model Trail by Cabinet of Curiosities is one of five new commissions for ‘Reclaim the Redways’ – developed to encourage more use of the Redways post the COVID-19 pandemic and supported by Milton Keynes Council. Cabinet of Curiosities is a design studio who were inspired by Milton Keynes’ iconic architecture.
The trail is located along a 1 mile stretch of the millennium circular Redway starting at Bradwell Windmill. The artists have created 5 sustainable habitats designed and made out of wood including bird boxes, bat boxes and an insect hotel.
Taking specific inspiration from buildings such as The Point and MK Gallery, as well as housing found in Eaglestone, the electric colour palette of red, yellow and blue and the rigid geometric forms recalls the design influence of the De Stijl art movement on the architecture and design of Milton Keynes.
A special Architectural Model Trail Activity Sheet has been developed and can be downloaded from the website link above.
