The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community (PFBC)
Two members of the PFBC staff, Education Manager Edith Platten and Design Team Member Michael Romero were judges for the Class of Your Own 2011 Competition to design a new eco-friendly house for HRH Prince William and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton.
Students from Accrington Academy’s Roots Eco Classroom participated in the competition, learning useful skills about the process of house design and construction. The design project was based on a spoof newspaper article which wrote that Prince William was looking to relocate to East Lancashire because he wanted his children to attend Accrington Academy and that his new home must be created in an eco-friendly way to continue his father’s passion for the environment. The article wrote, “a local search is now underway to find the team who share their environmental and community values with a talented eye for craftsmanship.”
