Three Day Young People’s Course Book now

Build the Future

Take on a three-day challenge, to build the future for the next generation.

What to expect

Experiment with architectural, interior and graphic design processes to develop 2D designs and turn them into 3D interactive spaces. Make your own rules, question current systems and respond to the needs of those that face living in the future.

Participants will get to compare the exhibitions, Designers in Residence 2018 and Home Futures before experimenting with a range of materials to build a new space of their own.

The final designs will be exhibited to friends and family to interact with at the end of day three. Whilst research, development and designs made throughout the workshop will build a project portfolio of work to take away.
