Design the skyline

Design the skyline

Challenge your class to design London’s future skyline! 

Taking on the role of architects, pupils will visit the high-level walkways to critically analyse the current London skyline before designing new landmarks using professional 3D design software, SketchUp.

Pupils will also be introduced to 3D printing and a 3D printed version of their design will be posted to them following the session, so you can recreate your pupils' imagined city in the classroom.
