Here at the RIBA the answer to that question is simple: As soon as possible!
Watch a video of some of the activities that will take place during ‘Body Building: Architecture and the Body’
The RIBA has organised a free family event, Body Building: Architecture and the Body, to engage children in the exploration of the built environment around them. Saturday 30 June will see staff from the RIBA running workshops where children from ages 5 and upwards will use their bodies to undertake a series of activities exploring how buildings work and to recreate London’s skyline through their arms, legs, hands and feet. With better knowledge of the built environment, tomorrow’s adults can be equipped to be active citizens and supporters of good design. A few of you may remember our last family event Your House, Your Home, pictures of which can be seen in a previous post.
Workshop times are 11.15am, 12.15pm, 1.15pm and 2.15pm and are all free and drop-in, but please note places may be limited at any given time. The event is part of the London Festival of Architecture (Fitzrovia hub).
The venue is the RIBA’s headquarters on 66 Portland Place, London. As well as the workshops, in the building there are exhibitions, bookshop, Library and restaurant which are all open to the public. See you on Saturday!
