Children should grow up being aware of their built environment and their potential to change the future for the better.We want them to embrace and claim for new strategies to obtain a better city to live in. This workshop arose as a critical and purposeful reaction to the lack of architectural knowledge amongst society. We have launched a pedagogical platform aimed at children all around London, teaching architecture and sustainability at primary schools.
