Archimake Newsletter 2

This week Archimakers were introduced to Chris Wilkinson of Wilkinson Eyre who sadly passed away in December 2021. They learnt about the practices landmark projects and were amazed by their Gateshead Millennium Bridge when they saw the video of it tilting to allow boats to pass!
Archimakers were tasked with drawing two of Wilkinson Eyres’  remarkable buildings, the Gasholders building and the Royal Ballet School – Bridge of Aspiration. Here are some of the wonderful drawings our workshop team helped children create this week.
