Design Day: Our Social House, an architecture workshop for ages 11 to 15

In this creative architecture workshop (for children aged 11 to 15 years) participants will explore the architect’s responsibility in creating social housing that is safe and meets the needs of residents by thinking about materials and budgets to design housing for the future.

About the Workshop

Participants will explore how the environment determines the design and materials used for different types. What’s so social about Social Housing? Where is it? Who owns it? Who can live there? Participants in this workshop will examine examples of social housing and consider the wider questions, concerns and challenges for society in building social housing.

Participants will explore the architect’s responsibility in creating social housing that is safe and meets the needs of residents by thinking about materials and budgets to design housing for the future that can bring a sense of ‘home’ or ‘community’.

This creative architecture workshop is led by artist and educator Zoe Allen for children aged 11 to 15.

All workshops require you to drop off your child by 11am and pick up at 4pm. They are led by professional educators and all materials are included in the ticket price, but you should prepare a packed lunch for your child. Online booking in advance is essential.
