Design Quest: Mobile Architecture, an architecture workshop for children aged 8 to 10

In this creative architecture workshop (for children aged 8 to 10), participants will design 3D mobile structures for a disaster stricken London. Using limited materials, they will build a local school, places of worship, a health centre and some housing units.

About the Workshop

Following a natural disaster, the heart of London has now been destroyed.

Whilst the ministers are looking for the funds to build in this new reality, we are looking for a team of people to design 3D mobile structures for our local school, places of worship, a health centre and some housing units.

Have you got what it takes? How creative are you with a very small selection of materials and a time limit? Would you take on the responsibility of organising our temporary village after such a disaster? Can you be our superhero?

This creative architecture workshop is led by Architect and educator Elisavet Skondra for children aged 8 to 10.

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.

About the Workshop Series

Our Design Quest workshops invite children to use their imagination for a fun introduction to architecture. Previous workshops have seen participants draw digitally, design architectural elements, create architectural cushions, build 1:1 structures that can withstand the elements, develop a miniature village in Regent’s Park or assemble a flat-pack home for your family.
