We’re planning a neighbourhood

Workshop on spatial planning, 5th grade to upper school level
Why can’t you just build a house wherever you have the most scenic view? Why are there more and more buildings and fewer and fewer meadows? With the help of visual materials, short films and a walk in the Patumbah Park, students will examine changes in the landscape. Working in groups, they will act as planners and develop a new neighbourhood. Upon request the workshop can be combined with a short tour of the villa.
Afterwards the class can enjoy a packed picnic in the park.

Dates: all day Tuesday , WednesdayFriday in the morning

Duration: 2 hours (2 ½ hours with tour)
