Milton Keynes City Discover Centre commissioned the Creative Ideas Office and Digital Hack Lab to renovate and restore the original architectural models created in the 1950s for the city of Milton Keynes for the 50th anniversary of Milton Keynes exhibition. The team used both traditional model making techniques and 3D printing to restore the models to their former glory. The restoration team included Professor Mark Bloomfield, Pete Brownhill, Justin Wornes and students from the Interior Architecture and Design programme.


“The University of Herefordshire team, under the guidance of Dr Shaun Borstrock, have shown the sensitivity and creative dedication needed to restore and repair the historically significant architectural models of Milton Keynes to an exceptionally high standard. The Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre is very happy with the enthusiasm shown by the whole team and the results so far, especially as most of the models will be on display during the 50th celebrations of Milton Keynes as a New Town in 2017.”
