Silver Sunday at the Design Museum
Wilson Yau leads a morning architectural model making workshop, in a hands-on creative introduction to architectural principles.
In the afternoon, writers Magnus Englund and Leyla Daybelge explore the architectural legacy of the Bauhaus’ immigrants to London, including Isokon residents Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy.
This event is part of Silver Sunday, a series of free community activities for older people. The Royal Institute of British Architects and Design Museum will host a weekend of free creative and cultural activities inspired by the Bauhaus school of art, architecture and design, which celebrates its centenary this year. A tour of the Bauhaus exhibition and a drawing workshop at the RIBA on Saturday 5th October will precede the activities at the Design Museum on Sunday 6 October. The weekend is designed for people to develop their creative skills and knowledge over the two days, but participants are welcome to book to attend just one day or book individual activities.
