About the Workshop

Design Quest: Home of Architecture

Friday 21 February 2020, 11AM-4PM

For children aged 6-10

Welcome to the RIBA. But what is the RIBA? What is the purpose of its HQ in London? It was built to be a place for architects to come together for special architecture events, to use the architecture library, use the café to socialise with other architects and buy architecture books from the bookshop. But did you know that it was built almost 100 years ago? In 100 years a lot of things have changed in architecture. And architecture isn’t just for architects, it’s for everyone. So how can we make RIBA’s HQ the ‘Home of Architecture’ for everyone?

Put on your architect's hat and think about what you, as an architect of the future, think the Home of Architecture’ should look like. If you were to build the RIBA today from scratch, what would it need? How has architecture changed in 100 years? We’ll explore all the hidden nooks and crannies of the RIBA and document it through drawing and photography to discover what’s good and bad about its design and come up with ideas for how we can improve it. Through a series of games, discussions and challenges, you will then create your own design for a new and improved RIBA building that is suitable, not just for the next generation of architects, but for everyone.

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

About the Workshop Series

For ages 6-10, our Design Quest workshops inspire younger children to use their imagination and hands-on creativity for a fun introduction to architecture. Previous workshops have seen participants create optical illusions, design sustainable dens, build stage sets, develop an animated story around a public space or assemble a house for a mouse.

Based in London, mainly our HQ at 66 Portland Place, all participants must arrive by 11am. These workshops are led by professional educators and all materials are included in the ticket price, but lunch is not provided.

If you're under 18, tickets must be booked by a parent or guardian. Online booking in advance is essential and if we do not receive full registration information in advance of the event we cannot allow the participant to attend.

Some of our workshops involve a visit to an offsite location that is designed to enhance the learning experience and provide vital real-world context. Children are supervised by RIBA staff and volunteers at all times during such visits and location information is provided in advance.

To see other learning workshops taking place in this series, see our families and children page.
