About the Workshop

Skill Up: Pushing the Boundaries

Monday 31 May 2021, 2pm to 4:30pm
For young people aged 15 to 18

While walls and borders are designed to separate, this workshop invites you to re-imagine the boundary as a place where people can come together to share ideas and develop friendships. We will explore the potential of movable, flexible and permeable structures and introduce you to architectural plan and scale drawing before you design your own proposal for a boundary structure that aims to bring people together across dividing lines.

Materials

  • paper (A4/ A3)
  • pencils
  • marker pens and colouring pencils (optional)
  • ruler

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

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 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

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