Design Time: Power of home (in-person workshop) - May 2022

Join us for a creative architecture workshop for young people aged 11 to 14 to explore ideas of the home, our relationship with domestic spaces, and how our homes can be designed to transform how we live in the city.

About the workshop

Tuesday 31 May 2022, 11am to 4pm (in-person workshop)

For children aged 11 to 14

This half term, join us for a creative architectural workshop for young people aged 11 to 14 years, inspired by the RIBA Radical Rooms: Power of the plan exhibition. We will explore ideas of the home, our relationship with domestic spaces, and how our homes can be designed to transform how we live in the city. We will find out more about architectural plans before transforming our ideas into models and experimenting with photographic techniques.

This creative architecture workshop will be run by mu projects, a collaboration between Cherng-Min Teong and Xuhong Zheng.

About the workshop series

Our Design Time (previously Design Day) workshops for ages 11 to 14 take architectural design a step further, by providing context and knowledge of the built environment to spark creativity.

Past workshops have focused on:

  • different architectural styles
  • small and large scale construction methods
  • traditional and digital drawing techniques
  • architectural games
  • using software to design collaboratively in a shared space

All participants must arrive by 11am. These workshops are led by professional educators and all materials are included in the ticket price, but lunch is not provided.

If you're under 18, tickets must be booked by a parent or guardian. Online booking in advance is essential - if we do not receive full registration information in advance of the event, we cannot allow the participant to attend.

Workshop costs

  • £48
  • £36 for participants who qualify for free school lunch (proof required)
