Children and Neighbourhood Design: understanding, space, behaviour, needs and perception

Working with Policy Studies Institute at University of Westminster, ZCD Architects are carrying out an exploratory pilot study to better understand how children understand, behave and relate to the spaces in their local neighbourhood. Through observational research and a series of workshops with a local school, we will be seeking to discover why and how their local neighbourhood impacts on their lives. We will be looking at layout, perception, space and identity. We are working with the local authority and will be publishing the results in 2018.

This substantial research project is funded by Westminster University, A New Direction and RIBA.
