Inspiring the next generation of designers, architects and engineers!
- Architecture and engineering workshop (2 days over half term weekend) sign up here!
- Pavilion construction (2 days)
The 2-day workshop will be a mix of short talks from professionals about architecture and engineering, and design workshops to put what you’ve learnt into action. In teams of 2-5 you’ll design a pavilion to be part of Clerkenwell Design Week in Central London with a given set of materials, creating concept sketches and models, drawing fundamental engineering views of the pavilion and explaining how you would build it! By the afternoon of the second workshop day each team will present their design to a panel of friendly architects and engineers from academia and industry.
The winning team members will see their design used as the basis for the real pavilion which you and all workshop participants are invited to help build in May 2018. Helping with the construction is a fantastic experience, but it isn’t compulsory: you can take part in only the workshops in February if you wish.

You are invited to join as part of a team (2-5 members), or individually! If you enter individually we will form a team with other individual participants for you. Please see the ‘How’ section below to register.
The Next Generation Design workshop and construction is a fantastic opportunity:
- to develop an understanding of what architects and engineers do
- to consider new careers and choose A-levels to match
- to gain experiences for your personal statement
- to have a fun and creative weekend!
