About the Course
Skill Up: Master planning for Migration
Thursday 16 April 2020, 11am to 4pm
For ages 15 to 18
What does an increasing population mean for design in growing cities where dynamic spaces are needed to accommodate a rapidly growing society?
Population increase, lack of local opportunities and climate change means more people are on the move towards already crowded cities. How do we plan, design and build to positively integrate and accommodate them?
This workshop will explore how architects and city planners are responding to both climate change and migration flows as opportunities for re-imagining how we live together. You will be introduced to scale, plan and perspective drawing techniques, before designing your own visionary masterplan for a city. Individual drawings will come together to form a larger masterplan of a future city, providing flexible, resilient and innovative solutions to welcome new inhabitants.
This creative architecture workshop is led by artist educator Marianne Holm Hansen, for young people aged 15 to 18 years.
About the Workshop Series
Our workshops and courses 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
- develop photography skills
- work individually and collaboratively to think about how to design sustainable and responsible architecture
Based in London - mainly at the RIBA HQ of 66 Portland Place - 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 and if we do not receive full registration information in advance of the event we cannot allow the participant to attend.
Some of our workshops involve a visit to an offsite location that is designed to enhance the learning experience and provide vital real-world context. Children are supervised by RIBA staff and volunteers at all times during such visits and location information is provided in advance.
- £40 excluding booking fee
- £30 for participants who qualify for free school lunch. (Proof required)
