Play as an Architect

Play as an Architect

Architecture is a wonderful subject that opens up a world of creativity and design. It also teaches STEAM, practical and social skills while learning about the environment and sustainability.

Architects design all sorts of buildings from houses to hotels, stadiums to skyscrapers, museums to malls. As an architect you need to develop your skills so that the buildings you design for people to live, work, play and learn in, are practical, aesthetically pleasing and a joy to be in.

Now any  budding Zaha Hadid or Bjarke Ingels can 'Play Better and Play Longer' using your Arckit sets or with the tools you have to hand like a pencil, paper, ruler and eraser.    

1.Arckitect ID

Get professional with Arckitect ID Badges and present yourself to the 'Client', the person who wants you to design their building for them, could be your mum, dad, brother, sister, grand parent...

2.The Brief

The brief is a set of instructions written by the client with the help of the architect which sets out what they would like included in the building. Here is a free 'Arckit Brief Template' to download and fill up with your 'Client' instructions. 

Ask lots of questions to help form the brief, like: 

- What type of building would you like me to design for you?(House, school, hotel, cafe, art gallery, pet house, hospital etc)

- Where is the location of the building site?(countryside, city, beach, mountain, desert etc)

- How many rooms?
