Highlights this Half Term at the RIBA

23 January 2018

Design a playground, build a house for a mouse or work together to build a new village of mobile architecture in one of our creative workshops for children and young people, this February half term at RIBA. Inspired by the RIBA’s world class architectural collection, participants will consider the challenges that architects face when they collaborate to create a new city, follow a brief to design future housing and explore socially responsible approaches to design and build for communities.

Our workshops take place between 12 to 16 February and are led by teaching architects and artists who will help your child learn important design skills through creative, hands-on activities.
