Architecture Ambassadors

July 2018


Today we spent a second brilliant morning with the Year 2 class at Twyford St Marys School, as part of the RIBA’s Architecture Ambassadors Programme. Inspired by a book they are reading (The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch), each team of two had to plan, draw, and construct their own lighthouse through ‘junk modeling’, tailoring their designs to a number of design briefs prepared by some particularly demanding lighthouse keepers!


Working in Plan, Section and elevation,we were amazed at the amount of thought & consideration each group put into their designs, and how they evolved throughout the session.  It was particularly great to see them engaging with a variety of different scales, considering the landscape, the building, and the activities that were taking place inside.  They even came up with novel ways of managing the daily commute, incorporating everything from tunnels, bridges & ladders, to trampolines, drones, and transformer style boats!


Thank you for treating us to some wonderfully creative and inspiring work today Oak Class!
