Social Architecture for Education – Past, Present and Future

28 June 2023

18:30 -21:00

Join this panel and exhibition event where we will explore how architectural design can responsibly address social inequalities, and how through implementing key measures, we can create impactful change across communities.

The evening will celebrate the long-standing collaboration between the University of Nottingham Design Build Studio and non-profit Education Africa and Thusanang Trust charities, and raise important funds for the South Africa crèche build ongoing initiative. The decade-long partnership has seen the design and construction of 10 crèche projects across the past 10 years and supported over 2,000 children, who have enrolled at the creches, and enabled the creation of sustainable employment for local communities. Donations towards the project are welcomed on the evening.

Insights into the impact of this work will be shared during the by Peter Russell, Assistant Professor and Lead of the University of Nottingham’s Design Build Studio, who will then chair a panel of expert speakers - bringing a perspective on the role of social architecture for education through a range of different projects.
