Description:
In the South-East of the United Kingdom lies Ramsgate. Within the context of an exchange programme with the University of Greenwich, an idea was asked for the King George Memorial park. The park is situated at the top of lime rock cliffs. I was fascinated by these rocks. Lime rock is a porous material what easily erodes. One solution is to wrap the lime rocks in concrete. This measure is effective for reducing erosion but destroys the ecosystem and is a depreciation for the coastal landscape.
