Architectural Pictionary

DSC_0674-copy DSC_0673-copy DSC_0675-copyArchitectural Pictionary: Survi-ville Edition, Chatsworth, Kent (UK) 2014PUG (Independent)Architectural Pictionary: Survi-ville Edition took place as part of the Designing The Future project in association with ReachOutRCA where secondary school children were challenged to imagine a future, post-climate change urbanism; the problems it will face, and the architecture that it could inspire.As an introduction to the theme, and to get the participants thinking about these problems in new ways, students were given 30 seconds to draw hybrid typologies; no time for overthinking, they simply scribbled down their first and often most radical ideas for given terms.

Producing nearly one thousand drawings, the work was exhibited, along with the accompanying Survi-ville model, at The Chatham Historic Dockyard for one month, drawing over 10,000 visitors.

Thanks in particular go to ReachOutRCA, The Arts Council, The Rochester Bridge Trust, Chatham Historic Dockyard, and the participating schools.
