Main Speaker: Mark Dudek, Director, Mark Dudek Associates
Speakers: Other Contributors to the book, TBC
Venue: School Works Conference Room,
1 London Bridge, London, SE1 9BG
The talk will focus on a new book, "Spaces for Children" (published September 2005, Elsevier) a collection of essays from educationalists, historians, architects and psychologists offering an opinion and overview of environments affecting our children. Subjects covered include 'Talking and Listening to Children', how to design with the aid of young children, 'The Building as Third Teacher', how well designed school spaces communicate important messages to children about their lives.
In terms of children's environments this book attempts to answer the question; where do we go from here? Come and contribute to the debate.
