HASSELL supports Archikidz!
The old adage says never work with children or dogs. Matthew Pullinger of HASSELL is hoping the same saying doesn't apply to designers.
Matthew will be leading a group of children aged seven to twelve at Archikidz!, an architectural workshop for children being held as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival. Together they will have four hours to design and make the city of the future. Archikidz! aims to inspire, excite and educate children about architecture and the built environment.
It is a big challenge, but the children of Sydney are up for it. Over 300 signed up for Archikidz! in a day and a half, booking out the event. HASSELL is a Gold sponsor of Archikidz! which will be held in Sydney on Saturday 27 October.
"I am really looking forward to seeing what ideas the kids come up with," says Matthew. "If my kids are a guide, they have high expectations for the cities they intend to grow up in, and we all have an exciting future to look forward to."
