Here at Code 6 Timber Suppliers, we have partnered with the Bridewater Arts Centre as part of the CIAM 6 Cities Re-imagined architecture and design project. A team of professional architects have helped us develop and manufacture hundreds of wooden blocks that will be used by school children to build and model their own cityscapes and what they think the future of architecture will look like! A series of half day workshops will explore the future of architects in the town and will expore city futures and visiions on sited for th etiwe, visions of it’s architecture and will aim to get children to think about their built environment in new ways. On Monday 10 July, The created work will be presented to a panel of professional planners and designers at the Schools Re-enactment Conference before forming the centrepiece of the project’s exhibition at the Arts Centre in September.
It’s the 70th anniversary of the International architecture and design conference which was held in Bridgwater in 1947, the sessions will explore city futures and visions for sites in the town. The project aims to get children thinking about their built environment in new ways, and through a series of half day workshops, gives them the chance to create models of their own live, work and play spaces. The created work will be presented to a panel of professional planners and designers at the Schools Re-enactment Conference on Monday 10 July, before forming the centrepiece of the project’s exhibition at the Arts Centre in September.
We’re always supportive of projects that get children into architecture and using sustainable products, getting children into the understanding of the materials and encouraging creativity is a great way to introduce them to architecture and design.
