About the Workshop
You have five hours to redevelop an area in an architectural style – do you accept the challenge? Taking the form of a design game, participants will be split into teams and given a brief and site to work on, before collaborating with other teams on shared sections of the site.
Each team will take on a different architectural style and each member of the team will have a unique role from which to tackle the brief. So set aside your personal taste and join the Style Wars.
This creative workshop is led by architects Peter Ayres and Ed Holloway of Beep Studio 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.
More about the architects:
Beep Studio brings people together to make engaging work for a wide audience. Alongside its core work in architecture and design, the Studio develops creative workshops for clients including The Design Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum, Sir John Soane’s Museum and RIBA.
A particular focus on the processes behind creative thinking gives participants the freedom to explore ideas within strict guidelines, and enables them to produce surprising, characterful results. The Studio also develops educational products with ‘Think Up’, a leading educational consultancy for the building industry.
Studio Directors Peter Ayres and Ed Holloway bring insights gained from their years in practice as architects and designers to their teaching.
In addition to their work with the Studio, Ed tutors Architecture students at the University of Liverpool, and has previously taught at the Universities of Greenwich and Kent, whilst Peter leads a range of workshops on cognitive thinking for creative professionals with 'Drawing at Work’.
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.
