Making Space: architecture and design for children and young people

The spaces and places where children experience their childhood will shape their future.  

Published by Children in Scotland, Making space: architecture and design for children and young people is part of a programme promoting innovation, creativity and sustainability in design for children, young people and communities, kindly supported by the Scottish Government.

The publication builds on key themes that emerged from the Making Space 2010 programme:

– exploring what makes a good physical environment for children and young people

– the role of good design in creating positive learning environments and implementing Curriculum for Excellence

– the importance of outdoor space

– consultation with children in the design process and many other important themes.

 

It is also a showcase for some of the most innovative spaces designed for children from across the world with contributions from architects and experts including Richard Yelland, Head of Education Management and Infrastructure, OECD, Michele Zini, Architect and Designer, ZPZ Partners, Grant Robertson, Associate Director, Scottish Futures Trust and Paul Stallan, European Design Director and International Principal, RMJM.

 

We hope that this publication will help inspire discussion and the sharing of ideas to ensure that children have high quality spaces that enhance their lives.  The full showcase of images can be viewed at: www.childreninscotland.org.uk/makingspace.

 

A limited number of complementary copies are available for Children in Scotland members.
