As part of its 60th anniversary exhibition at Mann Island, Liverpool, Ryder Architecture is hosting several events during October to engage with students, younger people and businesses in the area.
On 10 October, 15 pupils from Holly Lodge Girl’s School, a recent Ryder design, were joined by its architects and also staff from Liverpool One Lego store, to take part in a range of fun events and competitions. A whole host of interactive games entertained the pupils, including a “beat the architect” exercise, where they challenged architects “against the clock” to construct a building from Lego.
Other activities included exploring the 16 metre long exhibition display, which covers the practice’s work over 60 years, for a fun inter team quiz with prizes.
Gareth Callen, Ryder’s Liverpool director, said: “This is a great opportunity to follow on from a successful opening event last week with the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and provide a fun afternoon of activity for pupils from a school we designed, helping them to learn about design and buildings in an engaging context with professionals and their school friends.”
