Shape East is the architecture and built environment centre for the Eastern Region. We are a registered charity whose mission is to ‘help people make better places’. One of a national network of centres core funded by CABE, Shape delivers its mission through educational outreach work in village halls, Council Chambers, schools and communities across the region. Our education work ranges from quite formal seminar sessions with Local Authority members and officers to ‘Making Neighbourhoods’ planning and model making sessions with young people and adults from 7 year olds upwards.

Shape’s Objectives are to:

Inspire and excite people about the built environment and help them see it through fresh eyes

Increase understanding of the importance of good planning, urban design, architecture and construction

Encourage people to participate in the planning and other processes which shape change in their communities

Prepare the ground for the future by engaging children and young people in built environment issues
