About the workshop

Design Quest: Green House

For ages 6-10

10-11 April 2018

11AM – 4PM

What makes a building GREEN? How does our changing climate affect what we build? What is sustainability? What challenges do architects face today to ensure that we have somewhere to live tomorrow?

In two-days, participants will examine the impact architecture can have on its surroundings and will take part in a series of challenges in which we consider the cost, energy and materials used in building. We will question more broadly how our changing environment informs architecture today and how architects can work with nature and not against it to build our own growing city for the future. Participants will design and build low-impact, sustainable structures using recycled materials which will house or grow plants to offset the environmental impact of architecture.

This creative architecture workshop is led by educator Zoe Allen for children aged 6-10.

About the workshop series

Our Design Quest workshops invite children to use their imagination for a fun introduction to architecture. Previous workshops have seen participants draw digitally, design animal architecture, create a building that can withstand the elements, build 1:1 den structures, develop an animation around playgrounds or assemble a house for a mouse.

All workshops require you to drop off your child by 11am and pick up at 4pm. They are led by professional educators and all materials are included in the ticket price, but you should prepare a packed lunch for your child.  Online booking in advance is essential.
