Design Quest: Future proof from door to roof
Friday 17 February 2022, 11am to 4pm
For children aged 7 to 10
More than ever, architects have a responsibility to the environment. Imagine if, instead of knocking down houses that we don’t need anymore and building new ones, we gave our old homes a new life and used them with a new purpose. Imagine if our homes were designed to have many life cycles.
But which designs will be best for us in the future? What makes a building sustainable? What materials are the most eco-friendly and how do we plan to make our houses multifunctional?
Join us for this creative architecture workshop where we will explore ways to make our housing work for future generations. We will take part in a series of games and challenges in which we consider how to design houses that are adaptable and functional buildings for now and years to come. We will use drawing and model making to examine how to build more sustainable homes, with the most eco-friendly materials. Let’s see what your house will be next.
This creative architecture workshop is led by artist educator Zoe Allen for children aged 7 to 10 years.
This is a repeat of a workshop held in October 2022.
