What Adults Don't Know About Architecture
Children are rarely introduced properly to architecture, but there are in fact few subjects more important - because the quality of the architecture that surrounds us has such an impact on our mood and sense of well-being.
The bitter truth is that in modern times, we've built a world that's far too often ugly or uncharming - and we've done so because only a very few people ever feel they have the right to comment on what gets built around them. This is a chance for the next generation to develop the tools to talk about architecture with confidence, knowledge and passion. It tells us about what a satisfying building is, what makes a street enticing (or not), why some cities are charming and others repel us - and how we might build going forward in a way that will reliably delight and uplift us.
