Architecture workshop with Open City

Posted on: 11/03/2022

A select group of students were invited to participate in a workshop with Open City on Thursday 10th March 2022. The students were set a brief and a budget, and tasked to design their own building.

Accelerate Open City is a pioneering design, education and mentoring programme providing access to a wider pool of young people and increasing diversity in the build environment professions. 

Accelerate was developed and established by Open City in Partnership with and University of the Arts London — Open City ( the course hosts 60 students spilt between the two campuses.  Over the last decade, hundreds of students have taken part in the programme, with 70% of Accelerate participants securing conditional offers to study architecture and related subjects at university. This session with Year 9 and 10 students, we hope, will inspire students to apply for the Accelerate programme in Year 12 at Mayfield Sixth Form.
