Architecture for Children
Why we teach?
We conduct classes once a week in primary schools. There are currently 4 primary schools who are working with us in Hong Kong. We have taught over 7,000 children for free since 2014
How we teach?
Through trial and error, children discover the beauty of scientific experiments as they develop their creative and critical thinking.
We encourage people to use trash or recycled materials to build their projects. Feel free to email us if you want your ideas to be included.

We put together the best ideas we have collected from children in the last 18 years into a children book. Children can read and build along using found-at-home materials. Profit we will earn from this book will be used for us to cover our expenses of volunteering.
Our volunteers come from multiple background with the desire to promote equity, access, ecology and sustainability. The goal is to give our children a full spectrum of architecture. Our study is a mixture of art, design, math, science, culture and history
Our volunteering work is on display at the The American Institute of Architects Headquarter next to the White House until May 2017. Check AIA website for more information about the Emerging Professionals Exhibition.
