About the Course

Skill Up: The Human Scale of Architecture

Monday 6 April -Thursday 9 April 2020, 11AM-4PM, daily
For young people aged 15 to 18

How does architecture benefit our communities? What does it take to build places that promote health, well-being and happiness? Who decides on how our neighbourhoods are shaped and what role can WE play in creating thriving public realms?

Join us on this workshop to turn the neglected pockets of London into culturally and socially inclusive hubs. Through collaborative research, drawing, model making and creative exercises the participants will gain experience on how to analyse, develop and communicate ideas for creating site-specific urban interventions. Over four days, we will explore all aspects of the design and consider how navigating form, materials and function can enhance people’s connection with their environment.

This creative architecture course is led by Barbara (Basia) Swierc from West Port Architects for young people aged 15 to 18 years.


About the Workshop Series

Our workshops for ages 15 to 18 ‘skill up’ teenagers who are thinking about studying architecture or design. Participants think critically, share their views on architecture and express themselves through creative practice. In past workshops participants have learnt how to work to an architectural brief, improve portfolios, develop architectural drawing skills using a variety of media (including digital drawing on iPads) and photography skills, and work individually and collaboratively to think about how to design sustainable and responsible architecture.

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 young people page.
