How Places Work is a scheme supported by CABE to encourage young people from across the country to experience architecture and public space through a series of visits and tours to venues in their regions. In the company of an inspirational expert, young people are guided through to understand the importance of good design in the places that surround them. The scheme is based on Key Stage 3 but is easily adaptable for older or younger pupils in a wide range of curriculum areas.
If your school or organisation would like to be involved please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
