CHILDREN'S EXPRESS/ASH SAKURA ARCHITECTS/UNICORN THEATER/ACTION FOR CHILDREN'S ARTS

The team facilitated this project with the young people from schools in London. The process involved introducing architecture to the young people which was followed by site visits to different schools where the young people made their own views about architecture and how young people can be involved in Architecture. All this experience and views were presented at the ACA conference held at the Unicorn Theatre London; Through this write up by the young people we hope the reader can get the feeling that getting young people involved in the planning and design process can enrich the built environment we create for them. This project is all about "Getting young people involved in Architecture" and at the conference we introduced a short film we made on the opinions that other young people have about the schools we also interviewed architects live on stage in a question and answer session and asked questions like. Is there a fear of working with young people? Where and When should young people be involved in designing the buildings they use?
