Architecture and Design Learning on Both Sides of The Atlantic

September 17, 2021—12:00 pm1:00 pm

Join us for a panel discussion on the current prospects of architecture and design learning in K-12 education and hear compelling case examples from Finland and the U.S.

How do you build a better world? How can your creativity improve your community? What does it take to bring bold ideas to life? These are just a few of the questions educators, parents, and students learn to solve in a creative and innovative way with methods adapted from the worlds of design and architecture. Through engaging design- and architecture-based lessons and activities, students learn critical thinking skills and nurture their creativity while gaining a richer understanding of their potential to shape the world around them.

In this webinar, experts on both sides of the Atlantic (Helsinki and New York) will discuss pedagogical methods of architecture and design in formal education from pre-school to secondary education (K12).

The event is organized by the Consulate General of Finland in New York and Scandinavia House in cooperation with the A&DO Learning Centre for Architecture and Design and Archinfo Finland.
