Event description

Description

PLACE Urban Design Academy is an annual week-long event to introduce young people aged 14-18 to the built environment professions of architecture, urban design, town planning, and landscape architecture.

The Academy takes place over five days in early August (31 July - 4 August), during which a team of experts facilitate you in discussion, investigation and design challenges to explore the 2017 host city of Belfast.

The Academy will give you a sense of excitement about the processes that shape your environments and open up new pathways into creative careers for young people from all backgrounds. Activities you'll get involved with during the week include design master classes, model-making, site visits, sketching, and opportunities to develop urban solutions. It will be fast-paced and fun, with lots of support and mentoring from the team.

Attendance at all 5 days is required. The event will be held at PLACE, Lower Garfield Street, Belfast. Lunch and all necessary supplies will be provided free of charge. The Urban Design Academy is a project by PLACE, supported by Hope for Youth and Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
