Be part of the youngest architectural design team in town! During this enjoyable and highly creative camp you will work in groups to plan, design and build a model for The Children’s Quarter, a new urban development and landmark for the city of Dublin.
From brainstorming and then sketching ideas, you will then create detailed drawings and construct 3D models. Working with artist Jole Bortoli, you will be one of the lead architects who will contribute to creating a model city of the future. A city every child would want to live in and urban planners would want to consult you about.
