About the workshop

Join us for an introductory online architecture workshop for young people aged 15 to 18. Learn basic key architectural movements and need-to-know architects throughout history, right through to the present day.

We’ll begin to create a collection of useful information, images, and concepts, and then working to a brief, you’ll use your architectural know-how to create a building design inspired by the styles and designers of your choice.

Expect to come away from the session with a basic overview of architectural history, building styles, key architects and a lot of inspiration for your own work and designs.

Materials

  • A4 paper
  • pencil
  • coloured pens or pencils

This online creative architecture workshop is led by educator Katie Kennedy, for young people aged 15 to 18 years.

This workshop is a repeat of an online workshop held in August 2022.

About the workshop series

Our workshops for ages 15 to 18 ‘skill up’ teenagers who are thinking about studying architecture or design. Participants think critically, share their views on architecture and express themselves through creative practice. In past workshops, participants have learned how to work to an architectural brief, improve portfolios, develop architectural drawing skills using a variety of media (including digital drawing on iPads) and photography skills, and work individually and collaboratively to think about how to design sustainable and responsible architecture.

The workshop will take place online via Microsoft Teams. A link will be sent to participants with confirmed bookings. This event is suitable for those aged 15 to 18 years old. These workshops are led by professional educators and supervised by RIBA staff. Please see the materials list for items that will be required during the workshop.

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

Workshop costs

  • £24 excluding booking fee
  • £18 for participants who qualify for free school lunch (proof required)
