Event description
DESIGN AND BUILD YOUR SOCIAL BRIDGE

About this Event

SOCIALBRIDGES is a 2.5 hour hands-on design challenge to explore life during the pandemic through architecture, facilitated by an Architect. Architectural models will be created from curated materials symbolic of the pandemic.

This interactive and fun session will provide instruction on the use of mixed material and the art of model-making, as a form for communicating ideas. Thinking about your experience of the COVID-19 Pandemic, how has your life been affected? How can you express this though physical form? A guiding design theme for this design workshop connection - to counter the disconnection that the pandemic has resulted in for many people of all ages.

Learn new ideas and techniques of modeling and expressing ideas in fun and supervised setting.
