Scottish architecture and planning practice Halliday Fraser Munro is launching a search across the UK for young creative designers to show off their skills and imagination in its latest competition ‘Design your dream school’.
This follows on from the successful ‘Design a House’ competition which launched last year during lockdown and saw more than 400 school pupils enter from across the country.
The competition, designed to challenge pupils to think creatively, asks pupils to design eco-friendly, fun and geographically sustainable schools, and given the latest lockdown may also include innovative ideas to be Covid-19/virus proof.
Submissions can vary from sketches of an outside perspective, floorplans of your dream school and the perfect learning space and can be created using a number of methods such as pens, paper and building blocks or for those more skilled in IT, programmes like SketchUp and Minecraft can be used.
David Halliday, Managing Director of Halliday Fraser Munro, said: “With the latest lockdown continuing to affect many schools and families up and down the country, we thought this would be a great opportunity to task pupils with the challenge of envisioning their perfect school whilst learning from home.
“Engaging with the next generation has always been extremely important to us, particularly in the key stages of a young person’s development. By creating fun events and competitions like this one, we are introducing and hopefully inspiring pupils into the world of architecture. We are known for our work in the education space so always looking for new places to seek inspiration for our approach to design.”
The chosen winners will receive an Amazon gift voucher.
