Say Hello to: Building Blueprints
This is a simple and fun activity that introduces young people to the idea of a blueprint for a building. All you need are cardboard boxes, imagination and some tape.
Den Building is a quick and fairly low cost activity that is suitable for all age groups. It is particularly good as a family activity. All you need is somewhere to build, and a big pile of stuff to build with!
Find out what people like and dislike about where they live. This is a good activity to do as part of a larger community regeneration project, or as a way to canvas local opinion for consultation.
Arrange a local memory walk, during which older residents can share their stories of the local area with young people. This is an ideal project to introduce different age groups of the community to each other.
This is a quick and low cost activity introducing early years children to architecture by using the building they know best: a house.
A pop-up cinema event is a fun way of bringing a community together. It can be a good opportunity to clear and renovate a derelict or unused site, opening opportunities for further temporary use in the future.
Create eccentric buildings using line, shape, texture and patterns from your imagination, inspired by buildings around the world or the buildings around you.
Build, design and compete to see who can make the tallest, strongest tower out of newspaper. Work in pairs, teams or on your own. This is an ideal activity to use as part of a festival or family day and is fun for all ages.
