Dwellings, homes and dens
10.01.2018

We welcome children of early primary school grades for an art and construction workshop inducing into architecture, thinking about buildings, urban space, and the immediate human neighbourhood. The workshop is up to 1.5 h: 1st group at 9am-10am, 2nd group at 10:30am-12 noon. One group can take part in more than one workshops.

We will reflect together e.g. on homes of the past and think about those of the future. We will also reflect on what home means in the first place. Are homes built by humans only? We welcome kids who during the workshop will learn the history of homes, discover extraordinary buildings, residences, and dens. We will talk about the idea of the home used increasingly by architects and ponder on why they are enjoy so much popularity. Finally, in response to the needs of the contemporary city, we will create our own unique models of more or less crazy homes. The kids will produce e.g. models of a contemporary town.

The workshop is based on the book D.O.M.E.K published by Dwie Siostry Publishing House and looks at the architecture of the Old Town. Great fun guaranteed!
