08/01/2016 III International Conference on Education in Architecture for Children and Youth at the Reina Sofía Museum [MAD] Spain. 16-17/01/2015 By: metalocus, INÉS LALUETA, JOSE JUAN BARBA Categories: Architecture, Conferences, Recommendations

Poster by "como crear historias" The exhibition Playgrounds organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, was the starting point. The space to meet and to exchange knowledge and experiences was created through the social networks. Two years later, the Playgrounds Group, which brings together more than 300 architects and social workers dedicated to the teaching of architecture for children, organizes in Madrid the III International Conference on Education in Architecture for Children and Youth. The aim of the Meeting set by the Playgrounds Group is to provide an overview of architectural education for children and young people through the experience of different teams dedicated to this issue in the international arena. There is a growing interest in this kind of education confirmed by the increasing number of architects devoted to it and benefited from initiatives that promote the active involvement of children in their urban environment. After a first call, the expectations have been exceeded and they've had to expand the capacity at the Reina Sofia Museum.

The conference is an initiative that, through different activities such as those prepared for this event (see below), among other things, seeks to improve the spaces in which the youth relates within our cities. The approach from different perspectives and nationalities seeks to make visible the educational innovation and plurality of forms of approach that enables: arts education, technical knowledge, creativity and participatory processes will be some of the starting points for development. The architecture and knowledge of the built urban environment, although it is seen as subject in the school curriculum, has failed to establish itself as a significant part within it. The III Encounter pretends to be the meeting space for reflection about their scope and importance.

Interventions are grouped around three main themes: 1_ Architecture Education in schools and educational institutions (formal education). In this section involve, among others, Jaana Räsänen (Architecture Information Centre Finland) to explain the teaching of architecture in Schools and Schools of Arts for Children in Finland. 2_ Architecture Education in Museums and other alternative spaces (no formal education). This block will be introduced by Marta Morelli (Italy) to explain the educational architecture projects she develops at MAXXI -Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo, Rome-. Currently the museums and art centers are the places where this activity has achieved greater diffusion. 3_Architecture education as a tool to design spaces with children and youth. Besides its educational task, architects dedicated to this subject become activists of child's needs in the city. Angela Uttke (Germany) explains the work of child participation in schools developed by JAS association(Jugend Architektur Stadt). Other speakers like Irene Quintans (Red Ocara) or Miguel Rodríguez (Basurama Brazil) will present projects and initiatives linking education and participation in solving specific problems of children in the city. Finally the state of the issue at Iberian Peninsula will be addressed from the work and experience of various local teams, making way for debate and establishing conclusions.
