Our Hut is a small organisation based in Stockwell working in primary schools to deliver courses of architecture workshops. These run over four to six half-day sessions and involve teaching children about the theory and process of architecture.
Our Hut's aim is to equip future generations to get involved in shaping positive sustainable environments. We inspire and educate young people and the local community through programmes of interactive workshops about the built environment. We believe that knowledge and understanding of architecture and design are vital in developing children's sense of responsibility in respecting, shaping and improving the built environment. Our Hut was founded in 2004 by Lucy Lavers, Judy Ovens and Suzanna Prizeman, who bring together a combination of experience in architecture, design and education.
For all projects offered to state schools Our Hut raises funds from a combination of charitable trusts and corporate sponsors, allowing us to provide the workshops at no cost to the school.
