An inspiring project for schools
The Maggie's Centres design competition for Standard Grade and Higher pupils challenges students to design a new Maggie's Cancer Centre. This competition provides an opportunity to develop research and presentation skills, to introduce architecture in the classroom and to inspire pupils who have an interest in design.
To help carryout the competition in your classroom there is a design competition brief, a resource pack, a sample press release and some additional literature from Maggie's Centres to give background on the uniqueness of the buildings and charity. You can download these, along with other resources, below.
All competition entries are due 1 March 2014 and Kirsty Wark and architect Richard Murphy will judge the competition entries. The winner will be awarded a week long work experience at Richard Murphy’s architecture practice.
To ignight your creativity, have a look at the Centres to see the beatuiful, bold designs our architects have drempt up for us.
