Open City - Architecture in Schools

Added on by Jo Townshend.

This year JTA have the pleasure of taking part in the Open City Architecture in Schools programme. We are proud to be part of the programme for another year, working with teachers to inspire school children to gain understanding of how architecture informs the world around them.

We are lucky the be surrounded by plentiful of exemplary architecture, and will use this to our advantage whilst helping students to design a ‘Smarter City’. The programme stimulates response to aiding the children’s local communities, using architectural design as a tool for change.

Our first session was a training event between architects and schools, where we could exchange ideas and thoughts in preparation for the project ahead.
