Reimagining the RCP building: family workshop
10am - 12.30pm
11 St Andrew's Place, London, NW1 4LE
Families walking across the lawn to the striking RCP building.

Is it a ‘sausage factory’? Is it a’ battleship’? Is it a napping concrete creature? The RCP headquarters has been called many things – now it’s your chance to reimagine what the building could be.

In this special London Festival of Architecture children’s event enjoy an exciting range of activities designed to make you think differently about the RCP’s architecture and compare our London home to our headquarters in Liverpool which is designed with the health of its occupants in mind. From fantastical recreation to practical reconstruction, bring your imagination and learn how architects past and present shape lives with their designs.

The event is aimed at 7-11 year olds but all are welcome. 

Please book a ticket for each child attending. Children must be accompanied by an adult but adults attend free.


  • Join artist Rachel Mercer from London Drawing for a creative ‘Reimagine: Art workshop’ where children will make a fun and creative collage. Including drawing to transform familiar 2D shapes, constructing their idea for a larger building, and bringing form to their collage using resources from the RCP archives.
  • Our museum team will lead an interactive architecture tour.
  • Join a drop-in Lego session reconstructing our London and Liverpool homes.
