Calling all young architecture enthusiasts! This Monday in 751 D Park (798 Arts District), as part of the upcoming Beijing Design Week, there will be a bilingual architecture and city planning workshop catered especially for children between the ages of 7-12.
Inspired by Archikidz! from the Netherlands, Kidscity will be providing youngsters with the opportunity to get familiar with the design process, and how to go from the “idea” stage into actually building it with their peers.
It will be a fun, hands-on day, with visiting architects and volunteers that will be helping along the way to make your child’s architectural fantasies come alive. The day will finally culminate in a big, messy, and colorful group model of Beijing built from scratch. This will go on to be exhibited in 798 during this year’s Beijing Design Week.
In regards to the intent behind this fun and creative event, the organizers stated; “We believe our cities can become better by inspiring and empowering the next generation of thinkers and city-makers. Our kids! It’s important for us that they know that their voices are heard and that they can take action in their cities in the future.”
