Animal Architecture Class

Work with professional artists and architects from international art collective Delta Arts and the Geffrye Museum to create a temporary architectural structure inspired by natural habitat systems to be exhibited at the Geffrye Museum.

For those of you in the UK. This comes to us from the Hackney Hive. We can’t personally vouch for this program but we’re definitely psyched to hear about it:

A project for 13 – 24 year olds.

Work with professional artists and architects from international art collective Delta Arts and the Geffrye Museum to create a temporary architectural structure inspired by natural habitat systems to be exhibited at the Geffrye Museum.

This project is for 13-24 year olds and is being held at the Geffrye Museum, Kingsland Road, London, E2 8EA. www.geffrye-museum.org.uk

Introductory Event: Saturday 8th May: 11am-3.30pm
This one-day event is to introduce the programme, experiment with architectural designs and test out materials and concepts. Come and meet the artists and build a prototype structure. Lunch will be provided.

Short Course: Tuesday evenings 5-7pm:
11th, 18th, 25th May, 8th and 15th June followed by a one day exhibition launch event on 19th June.

Work with professional artists, ecologists and architects to design and build a temporary architectural structure. This course will look at structures in the natural world to inspire proposals for communal living environments. You will have the chance to experiment, in a supported environment, with a range of materials and drawing and construction processes, to build a temporary structure for exhibition.

Your work will be exhibited to the public at the Geffrye Museum, launched through a day event on 19th June.

A certificate of attendance will be provided at the end of the course for use in your CV. No previous experience necessary, just an enthusiasm to be part of the project.

Sounds very cool. If only we were a bit younger (and British)! More information at the Geffrye Museum.

Concrete Chimney Swift Tower

The evolution of the Chimney Swift is closely intertwined with modernity and the changing habitats of humans. Although originally nesting in caves and rotted trees, Chimney Swifts now primarily nest in, well -- chimneys and other man-made habitats. They adapted to chimneys in the first place due to a scarcity of standing, rotted trees - as these have a tendency to fall onto property and are quickly taken down.
