How young people benefit

All Architects in Residence projects use local architecture as a starting point. Learning through architecture is an exciting way of encouraging students' natural curiosity, stimulating their creativity and inspiring them with future career possibilities. It provides a perfect vehicle for cross curricular learning in maths, history, geography and the arts. Using architecture for a school based project offers students an opportunity to develop skills in:

  • communication
  • working with others
  • creative thinking
  • problem solving
  • applying their knowledge of curricular subjects
  • information technology

'The project gave the children a context for learning - rather than learning maths to develop our numeracy ability, the project allowed the children to see a purpose of their calculations (which is hugely important to their motivation and focus).'

Kathryn Ellis, Year 6 Teacher, Tower Bridge Primary School
