Architecture Workshops are hands-on fun educational activities for all Key Stages and abilities. Designed to enhance the national curriculum and to communicate the art and experience of architecture, art, and design. The workshops help resource the school curriculum by providing pupils with insight into why and how things are the way they are.
In the workshop, the quest for understanding the world around us is a shared experience between workshop presenter 'animateur' and the pupils. Visualising, designing, creating, calculating and analysing are presented through practical activities. Pupils enjoy and learn about the real world through 'learning by doing', self teaching and communicating to others.
Our Architecture Summer Schools are run over five days. We have developed the course to give students a taste of what would be expected at the entry level to an architecture degree course.
Without the constraints of the school day the students are able to experience much more the way in which architects work and that of a school of architecture.
Students are encouraged to work on their own initiative, with support form our animateurs, but also from each other. Aimed at students with an interest in all aspects of design, the students work together and individually to build a scale site model of an area local to the venue site (which could be a school, education centre etc.) They then set about designing and making models to a given brief related to the site model.
Presentation of completed work on the final afternoon to staff, parents and invited dignitaries. Students are each presented with an Architecture Workshops certificate of achievement.
