Doors Open Day at Hoskins Architects’ Dream House Workshop

About Doors Open Day at Hoskins Architects’ Dream House Workshop

Be it an underwater tower block, a bungalow in the sky or Chewbacca's holiday home - get designing!

All materials will be provided. Children are required to be accompanied by an adult.

Visitors will have the chance to design & model their own dream house from plasticine which will become part of a large landscape that is constructed over the course of the day.

Hoskins Architects will use the process to explain how the design of buildings and the spaces between them can contribute to improving our lives. The activity is targeted at all ages, skills and abilities.

The workshop is accompanied by an exhibition of houses by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects & Hoskins Architects, first shown at the Royal Scottish Academy in 2016.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Doors Open Day at Hoskins Architects’ Dream House Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
