calling all budding architects and designers!

Japanese Children build a futuristic model of the nation of Japan

Does your child love to build? I know that Lego still takes pride of place in our home – from marvellous towers to sprawling cities – children around the globe often solve the problems of the world in miniature! And definitely explore their imagination,  push creative boundaries and problem solve all while playing.

An exploration in 3D uses creative muscles + problem solving strategies different to those in 2D. Can my structure support itself? Can it carry weight? How can we make it taller and still have it stand? Just a few questions asked when volume is at play and not just surface.

Often a love of 3D thinking stimulates interest in a career in Architecture and Design – oh what fun to build for a living – or as Iggy Peck could boast, ‘to build churches and chapels from peaches and apples, and temples from modelling clay!’

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore extraordinary architecture + architects from around the world and learn some of the considerations + and questions asked by architects and designers during the design process.

We will draw, guess, problem solve, discuss, and of course, construct using clay and recycled materials!
