- Architecture and engineering workshop (2 days)
- 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 for the heart of the Broadgate Estate in London, with a given set of materials; creating concept sketches and models, detailed drawings 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 each receive a prize, but more importantly their design will be used as the basis for the real pavilion which you and all workshop participants are invited to help build in September 2018 as part of the London Design Festival. Helping with the construction is a fantastic experience, but it isn’t compulsory: you can take part in only the workshops in June if you wish.
Generation Pop-up is being completed in partnership with The City Centre, New London Architecture, and Broadgate Estates. It follows on from previous Scale Rule design-build workshops in London, Birmingham and Nottingham completed 2015-2018.

The workshop is open to students between 16-18, with places available for up to 20 students. 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!
