Playful Prototypes

For the last three years we have delivered architecture and design projects working with leading practitioners and local schools culminating in an outcome in our gallery space over the Christmas period. In Autumn 2021 we have been working with Studio Polpo and Architype to deliver our next project with Mapledown SEN school, Trent CE Primary School and Saracens High School.    

The project will combine Architype’s expertise in low-carbon sustainable design, design of educational environments and co-design strategies, and Studio Polpo’s experience with arts-led temporary structures and installations. During the Autumn term, students from the three schools will work with Studio Polpo and Architype to develop their understanding of design and sustainability, and to create a piece of work which can be displayed in their school.

Come and see their work in this exhibition presentation.
