Work Experience Opportunities!

We are delighted to share that some of our partner architecture practices have confirmed they will offer some of our Bronze Award holders a work experience opportunity in the school holiday in 2023! We will be discussing this in more detail in early 2023. If you are interested in this for your child please use the Doodle Poll link to let us know your preferred school holiday period.

Project Review Video Catalogue

Huge thanks to our Guest Reviewers May Tang Architect & Senior Associate at Heatherwick Studio and Alan Bloodworth, Civil Engineer at TEDI-London – Archimakers received excellent feedback on their projects.

Our project records have grown over the years, we are now working on sharing these in our Project Review page on our website. In addition to the inspiring projects Archimaker's have created, we have the insightful presentations from leading industry Guest Reviewers. The time required to create the database is quite extensive so there is a small charge per view, in order to maintain the ability to build this resource. We envisage this will be useful for educators, designers, researchers, and parents, not to mention Archimaker's themselves.

Inspire Future Generations Awards comments by TET

Childrens University Westminster Workshop Summary

In the workshop the children explored the use of folding techniques one being the origami technique. They also got to see how origami can be used with materials such as wood.

Northbridge House Senior Workshop Summary

Skills developed during the modelmaking workshop; Understanding how sustainability can be incorporated into architectural design

Kings Cross Workshop Summary

All of the children produced some really creative designs including looking at how air would circulate in a building passively and also looking at sustainable materials. One of the students was inspired by the Origami workshops we had previously held looking at the Angel Wings by Heatherwick and how transparent solar panelled glass could be used. There was also an exciting use of colour in many of the students designs. I'm very proud of everyone who attended and some exceptional designs produced this week.
