In this open workshop, we invite young enthusiasts of drawing to become ‘architects for a day’ and re-imagine the neighbourhoods around the iconic Battersea Power Station. During the workshop, we will explore which are the main architectural elements that shape the areas identity and we will attempt to propose alternative and imaginative approaches towards a vibrant and dynamic new neighbourhood! Participants will work together with the workshop tutor to design their ideal home, neighbourhood and playground and learn the basics of architectural design.
Suitable for students and children aged 13 and over. It is suitable for all abilities - beginners welcome. This workshop will involve drawing outdoors. All materials included.
Online booking essential.
