TALK100 Session 3


How do we involve children in a design process? Why is it important to teach children about design and architecture? Children can develop vital core life skills when they learn in environments designed for creativity and activity. Danish architect Julie Dufour talks about designing the Ama’r Children’s Culture House in Copenhagen, and the classes and activities children experience in the space. Rachel Botsis from Innovate the Cape talks about Bellville Box, a design and innovation challenge for high school learners interested in designing public spaces. Eric Atmore is the Director of the Centre for Early Childhood Development and will share the exciting plans for the  Cape Town Museum of Childhood to be launched in 2015.

About the Bellville Box

The Bellville Box is a design challenge that gives high school learners in the greater Tygerberg region the opportunity to redesign public spaces as part of a broader solution to solving urban challenges within their community.

The challenge requires learners from grades 9 to 11 to think creatively about how urban spaces in the Bellville CBD can be reinvented by introducing activations such as parklets. Working in teams, learners participate in a series of design-thinking workshops and enter their solutions into a design competition. The top five teams create physical models of their solutions. The winning team will work with local designers to manufacture and assemble their Bellville Box solution which will be launched in October 2015.

At the time of writing, the competition winner has been selected and is refining the idea with local design consultants, Thingking.

The Bellville Box is undertaken in partnership with Innovate South Africa and the Greater Tygerberg Partnership.
