Skill Up: Jigsaw Estate - April 2021

About the workshop

What makes a good community? Is good housing more than just buildings? What is it that gives value to built spaces and grows a sense of social identity and community?

Join us for this online creative architecture workshop, led by educator Daniel Wallis for young people aged 15 to 18 years.

The workshop looks at RIBA Stirling Prize 2019 winner Goldsmith Street for inspiration in designing housing so it becomes part of an active community space. Participants will plan a new housing estate, focusing on house design, street layout, community spaces and amenities.

Materials

  • a range of different coloured paper
  • scissors
  • glue stick, tape and/or blu-tack
  • pencil
  • pen

This online creative architecture workshop is led by artist-educator Daniel Wallis for young people aged 15 to 18 years.

This workshop is a repeat of a Skill Up workshop from February half term.

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 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.

The workshop will take place online on Microsoft Teams. A link will be sent to participants with confirmed bookings.

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 (introductory rate)

  • £20 excluding booking fee
  • £15 for participants who qualify for free school lunch (proof required)
