Open City’s Architecture in Schools programme is a yearly highlight for the LOM team. This year we spent time with Key Stage Two pupils from Manorfield Primary School in Poplar, demonstrating how architecture informs the world around us and inspiring the next generation of city-shapers.
The theme was ‘Celebration City’, encouraging the children to consider what they like to celebrate and how this could influence the urban landscape.
“We had a fabulous time researching, planning, making and evaluating our structures that we created for our celebration city. We learnt so much from our architects and made some amazing structures with their guidance. Thank you so much!”
Ms Hanna Simmons, Manorfield Primary School
To wrap up the programme, the children’s work was put forward for the Architecture in Schools Awards. We are delighted to announce that Manorfield Primary School won first prize for ‘Best Class Effort’. This fantastic achievement was recognised at the award ceremony on 3rd December.
