The House as a Shelter: Lego challenge – Sunday 10 May 
During these weeks of lockdown, many changes occurred in the world, in our community, in our jobs, schools, our family nucleus, even the way we perceive ourselves and our position in this new world. Our homes gain different meaning, they are not only a symbol of asset, belonging, identity, and privacy, we are almost bringing back the stone age notion of home – the shelter – a place that keeps us safe!

In this workshop we will use Lego to communicate with each other how would we built a shelter.
Materials required: Lego (normal or Duplo)


The Window to the Future – Sunday 17 May
What is the purpose in having windows in our house? To provide the spaces with natural light, but even more to give people inside an orientation on the world outside, the daytime, weather, view of the surroundings etc.

Look outside your window, what do you see?
Materials required: A window, paper and pens/markers/paint/crayons


The Animal Architect: Play-Doh challenge – Sunday 24 May
If we are talking about architecture we must talk about our most ancient and resourceful architects of all times, the animal architects!
Some animals have been building intricate structures while humans were still living in caves. From birds to ants to bees, join us to see how animals all over the world build their homes.

Now imagine if you were an animal architect, what would you build?
Material required: Paper + pens/markers + play-doh/plasticine
