Architecture and Children
What we do
The UIA Architecture & Children Work Programme aims to raise awareness among children of the built environment, architecture, urbanism and sustainable development. Fostering their knowledge in these fields will ensure their development as responsible citizens, able to make their voices heard and influence the political, economic and social strategies that will shape their cities and their environment.
How we do it
The UIA Golden Cubes Awards - These triennial awards celebrate those preparing our children and young people to participate effectively in the creation and intelligent use of architecture that is humane, sustainable and respectful of its context. The awards are divided into fours categories: Schools, Institutions, Written and Audiovisual media.
Built Environment Education (BEE) Guidelines - The UIA BEE Guidelines are designed to help architects and teachers all over the world to collaborate successfully. The guidelines exist in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Turkish and Finnish.
Knowledge sharing - the UIA Architecture & children WP Website is an international platform for professionals and BEE actors. Websites within the UIA Built Environment Education Network aim to provide architects and teachers with information, ideas, materials, tools and resources. You can also find out more about our news and events on the UIA Architecture & children WP Facebook page.
Who we work with
Educators around the globe bringing architecture into their classrooms. The Programme's tools and resources are designed for teachers with a non-architectural background.
