An architecture workshop at the RA

Take on the issues of air pollution in London from an architectural approach in this full-day workshop for young people aged 15 - 19.

Led by Jack Carter Architects, participants will design a clean air annex for the RA, thinking about how architecture can provide a green area of respite and relaxation within a bustling city. They will make scale models of their designs, learning how to measure and craft an idea to fit its context.

This activity will give a great understanding of the skills needed as an architect and tackles an important topic for urban designers today.

Jack Carter Architects (JCA) are a London based design studio consisting of Jack, Abigail, George & Tom. Founded in 2016, Jack worked for the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Paris for seventeen years as an associate leading a variety of internationally recognised projects including the New York Times Building and the Shard redevelopment of London Bridge.

Our new young people’s programme invites students from all backgrounds, aged 15 to 19, to take part in practical art workshops. Led by professional artists, these free, day-long sessions will take inspiration from our world class exhibition programme and the RA Collection, working with new materials and discussing different approaches to making art.
