Cambridge Futures exhibition in the Senate-House

The results of the Cambridge Futures study will be on display to members of the University in the Senate-House on Friday, 14 May, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The exhibition includes a twenty-minute video summarizing the results. The Project Director, Professor Marcial Echenique, will be giving presentations at 12 noon and 3 p.m.

Cambridge Futures is a non-profit making group of academics, business leaders, politicians, local government officers, and professionals which has been looking at the options for growth in and around Cambridge with the aim of exploring the kind of environments which could be created over the next fifty years. The principal intention has been to provide the basis for an informed debate.

Seven alternative options for the future form of the Cambridge area have been developed. Following extensive computer modelling, each option has been evaluated in terms of social equity, economic efficiency, and environmental quality. The study, which was undertaken as a research project in the Department of Architecture, was sponsored by the University, local authorities, and business.
