Holiday workshops

During school holidays the architecture education team in the Az W regularly comes up with a number of enjoyable themes that are designed to appeal to children.

Given the fact that children's visits in the summer are, so to speak, "voluntary" (unlike during the school year when they come with the school) and the children expect to have some fun, the summer workshops are primarily based on play. Studies have shown that children who grow up in the country develop a greater awareness of their surroundings than city children.

This means that it is important for children to build houses and spaces of their own – that suit their proportions and with which they can identify – so that they can consciously experience space. On this account 1:1 building is particularly popular with Viennese children and is a regular feature of the Az W summer programme.
