Have you always wondered how buildings are built and who designs them? Love to draw? Make things? Problem solve?

As an award winning design practice, BDP is offering a 3 day work experience for Year 9 to 12 students. The session is set up to give you the opportunity to understand what an Architect does, how you can become an Architect and give you the opportunity to design a building for yourself!

Each day will be broken into informative and supervised sessions (2-3h/day) and independent/team working (3-4h/day). The aim of this workshop is to provide YOU with the opportunity to be creative and collaborate, working in the same way we do at BDP. Using the knowledge you will gain throughout the experience, your challenge is to collaborate, communicate and create!

You do not need any prior experience to take part; just a keen interest in design and the built environment. We are looking for applicants to bring enthusiasm, creativity, and open-mindedness to the session!
