Nature In+ Architecture
Immerse in the enchanting world of nature and nature-inspired architecture and learn to design your own versions of organic buildings! ✨
In Nature In+ Architecture, pupils will take on a breathtaking journey to uncover some of the most fascinating buildings inspired by or built for nature, from around the world — buildings inspired by forests, trees, animals, and the marine world!
What do you enjoy most about the nature and how can you incorporate that into your building design? Have you lived in a tree, what features would your tree structure have?

Nature In+ Architecture   |   Children Holiday Workshop

In Arkki's Nature In+ Architecture workshop, you’ll be introduced to the basics of organic and ecological architecture, as well as explore the special characteristics of living in nature. Over the three days, we'll enrich your sensory and learning experiences with different tactile activities and modelling techniques. You’ll learn to perceive scale, space and the difference between organic and non-organic shapes and then build your own versions of nature-inspired buildings or structures, including a treehouse! In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to the basics of organic and ecological architecture, as well as explore the special characteristics of living in nature.

Re-think architecture and celebrate the beauty of nature in your creation. We can’t wait to see the amazing designs you’ll come up with!

Witness knowledge in action! Our award winning creative programme infuses the application of STEAM subjects [Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture/Art, Mathematics], Humanities and Social Sciences with situation-based projects and support the development of innovation skills and competencies. You will enjoy the experiential learning, problem-solving process, collaboration and working through the creative process of building and environment design. Ultimately, they will be able to:
  • get creative,
  • unlock their critical thinking skills
  • take thoughtful risks,
  • have fun and
  • bring their models home!

The Arkki Programme

The award-winning Arkki programme is the only one in Singapore (and Asia) that offers an extensive, long-term curriculum based on architecture and design for children and youth. Our curriculum offers 30 modules for progressive learning, each carefully designed for the age group it caters for.

Through ideating, planning and finally translating their ideas into 3D models and designs – the pupils will jumpstart their imagination and prove their assumptions by experimenting and testing their ideas, no matter how unusual they may sound.
The hands-on, project-based curriculum is carefully designed to equip children and the youth with 21st century skills: creativity, complex problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and resilience.
The course is also designed for pupils to gain a stronger grasp of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) subjects through a series of super fun and educational projects that connect with real life challenges (e.g. from building the strongest tower, drawing inspiration from history and designing a temple façade, to designing a natural shelter for animals). It also intertwines different subjects through projects and teaches artistic methods through hands-on activities. This course enhances collaboration, communication and presentation skills of the pupil leading to the building of positive self-image and confidence.

Arkki is an award-winning, Finland-based school of architecture and creative education for children and youth. Arkki’s programme uses architecture and design as a medium to advance the development of high order thinking skills, creativity and learning of academic subjects. In Singapore, it is the first of its kind to offer an extensive long term curriculum for progressive learning. Our coaches are professionals with architecture or design backgrounds They are trained and certified by Arkki International. Arkki’s programme is backed by 30 years of research and practice. It is now global and available in more than 20 countries worldwide.
