This October, Archifest 2018 will be partnering BEEP (Built Environment Education Programme) Lab to organise the annual KIDsBuild workshop — a hands-on activity for children to discover the joy of building.
Led by Albert Liang of BEEP Lab, a team of volunteers from NAFA Landscape Architecture, Mark 12 Architects, and KYX Architects will be teaching kids to express their creativity through a fun and imaginative city building experience.
Working with a variety of craft materials, our mini architects will be introduced to the foundations of city planning, as well as the richness of Singapore’s multicultural heritage. The workshop will allow kids to try their hand at moulding residential buildings, schools, community spaces, mixed-use developments, and our nation’s iconic landmarks.
KIDsBuild culminates in a public installation exhibit that showcases the combined handiworks of our kiddy city builders. This event highlight is open to public participation at Millennia Walk Great Hall on the following days:
Members of the public are encouraged to drop by and sculpt their own structures, which they can add to the ever-evolving exhibit.
BEEP Lab aims to enrich and engage the minds of primary school children in the areas of design and architecture.
Our academy focuses on running hands-on building workshops that help nurture a child’s skills in creativity, confidence, and collaboration.
BEEP Lab also trains educators and facilitators in creating content that are inspired by our built, natural, and cultural environments.
