Making Happy Places

Architecture Summer School

August 1, 2018 10-4pm, FREE

What do Architects do all day? Join us this Summer to find out, think about your city and work on a professional architecture brief.

Across the 4 days (July 30th to August 2nd) participants will explore communal spaces and reflect on the social impacts of architectural design. The school will be an opportunity to pause and reflect on your relationship to your home, the city and consider your place within it. How are the environments and the spaces we live in important?

You will begin to build up a portfolio and skills that could contribute to moving into the field of Architecture.

The programme will be delivered by local Architectural designer Sahra Hersi and Artist Educator Laura Owen. It will run from Monday – Thursday and conclude with the opportunity to apply for a work experience placement at a professional architects practice.

The 4 day school will consist of creative and experimental workshops in model making/drawing, developing design concepts, discussion and talks from Architects and an exhibition visit. Students will set up their own studios in the space and be welcomed into the Artist and Architects community at the Old Manor Park Library.

Limited places are available for this programme. Please register here and we will send you enrolment details.

Suitable for young people aged 16-19yrs.

Schedule for each day is 10am to 4pm.
