Practice pledges support for Architecture Foundation initiative aimed at young people
Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners is to sponsor the next two years of the Architecture Foundation’s education programme, the Urban Pioneers.
The programme works with teams of 16-19 year olds in areas experiencing significant amounts of development and aims to help them to critically engage with the changes and learn new skills.
Workshops take place with built environment experts including architects, engineers, filmmakers, artists, designers, planners and writers.
Since it started in 2008, the programme has focused on the areas of Bankside, London Bridge, King’s Cross, Deptford, Battersea, the Upper Lee Valley, Barking, Canada Water, South Kilburn, and most recently Willesden Green.
Ivan Harbour said: “Programmes like the Urban Pioneers help make sure the next generation can be inspired to understand, reshape and improve their environments.”
The next Urban Pioneers programme will focus on the Heathrow area and will work with young people who live or study in the London Borough of Hillingdon.
