'We bring up our children to walk past buildings and to live, learn and shop in them. Rarely does anyone help children to take buildings to pieces with their eyes and minds. Just as we have anthologies of poetry, compact discs of music, and displays of reproductions of paintings in schools, could we not have a collection of the materials that we use to build.'

Professor Michael Marland, Headmaster of North Westminster Community School,
writing in ‘Perspectives on Architecture',
the journal of the Prince of Wales's Institute of Architecture, 1996.


This booklet is an example of a school trying to do that.
