Event description

Description

31 July - 4 August 2017, 11am - 4pm daily

Our experience of architecture today is defined by borders; invisible and physical, global and local, positive and negative. Join us as we explore what these borders are and how they might be constructed or destroyed. We will design and build using Minecraft, a game which redefines the concept of shared space and collaborative design as we know it. Through sketching, model-making and 3D printing we will bring these ideas to life over this 5 day workshop.

Please note - all participants will need the following to attend this workshop:

• Their own laptop with a mouse
• Minecraft 'PC Edition' downloaded to their laptop
• Minecraft account

With Kayoon Anderson and James Delaney

Kayoon Anderson and James Delaney are both architecture students at the University of Cambridge. For the last 5 years, they have been exploring the potential use and relevance of Minecraft to architectural practice. In 2012 James co-founded BlockWorks, a digital production company which works exclusively with Minecraft, and is now the largest of its kind in the world.

These are drop off workshops that are led by professional educators. They start daily at 11am and finish at 4pm. Lunch is not provided, so please provide a packed lunch for your child to eat in their break.
