Joy of Creating and Building: Encouraging Sustainable Design Thinking in Children through the Lens of Architecture
In an initiative that endeavored to sow the seeds of creativity, sustainable thinking, and innovative design among young students, we recently facilitated a hands-on and dynamic program titled “Joy of Creating and Building”.
This three-hour workshop aimed to instill the primary school students a deeper understanding and appreciation for the principles of sustainable design of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
Each student received a 2’ x 2’ plot on which the students built their unique tiny homes and these plots were combined to represent a single city-housing development, aptly named “3R: City”.
Through “Joy of Creating and Building” program, it is hoped to inspire the next generation of architects and innovators, fostering a stronger commitment to sustainable design principles and contribute to a more sustainable future.
