THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE FUTURE @ the V&A - Children’s architecture workshop  - Sunday - 10.30am-5pm - drop in

The workshop aims to educate and inspire children to re-think how we design and build our homes and cities. During the workshop, the future architects will be asked to visualise, build and decorate their own modular homes, sculptures or iteration of ‘MultiPly’. 

Each child will receive an A4 sheet of laser cut modular panels which have pre-cut windows and doors. The panels can be assembled in different ways to create individual shapes and structures. 

The workshop is aimed at children from 4 to 15 years old with a more complex version for older children. 

and don't forget to wear your Jeans for Genes Day on Friday, for all info on things to do, it's all on the website.
