School of Architecture For Kids

Let's play, learn, and design together!

arKiDect teaches
a way of thinking to kids

Lasting learning occurs through play and carefully planned project work.

Through arKiDect, every child is learning new problem-solving skills not only about architecture and environment but in other areas where they can apply these skills as well.

Children are getting more connected with the world and learning new problem-solving skills. Kids can recognize the qualities of good design and the value of a well-designed piece of architecture. Therefore they can participate in the development of the “built environment” in the future whatever their occupation is.

Education through play!

By infusing play into learning experiences, children remain actively curious and motivated, fostering a deeper understanding of concepts.

Playful activities promote cognitive development by encouraging problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity in a fun way. Furthermore, these experiences promote social engagement, assisting children in developing communication and teamwork abilities.

What we do?

Learning through play instills a lifelong passion for exploration, setting a solid foundation for continuous growth.
