Skill Up: Contested Space, an architecture workshop for ages 15 to 18

In this creative architecture workshop (for young people aged 15 to 18 years) participants will explore how architects across the world are establishing socially responsible approaches to design and build for communities, sustainability and change.

About the Workshop

How do we maintain and increase public and community spaces when the cost and competition for land is increasing? Can architectural practices provide solutions?

This workshop will explore how architects across the world are establishing socially responsible approaches to design and build for communities, sustainability and change.

We will consider architects' ingenuity regarding unused space, finance and materials before we use drawing and presentation techniques to design our own ideas that may convince others that it is indeed possible to create new public spaces in a crowded city.

This creative architecture workshop is led by artist and educator Marianne Holm Hansen for young people aged 15 to 18.

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. Online booking in advance is essential.

About the Workshop Series

Designed to ‘Skill Up’ teenagers who are thinking about studying architecture or design, in past workshops participants have learnt 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.
