What's In A Building?

A key characteristic of Modernist architecture was that 'form should follow function', in that a building's look should be determined by what it will be used for and what it is made from. Young people will be asked to take on the role of architect using a range of model making materials such as foam board, card and balsa wood to build their own architects' models of a building they have designed, having first considered what its use will be. Suitable for KS 1, 2 and 3 with advanced facilitators for KS 4 and A-Level students.
