This programme follows the pupils of Acland Burghley School in north London as they brief SHH Design to help them transform their dingy canteen into The Hub, a place to eat and socialise.
Involving pupils in this way is a key part of the Joinedupdesignforschools project.
The brainchild of The Sorrell Foundation, the project gives pupils a major say in how an aspect of their school's environment is improved. The pupils are the clients, briefing designers who produce designs for their approval.
The project follows a four stage pattern:
- The challenge
- The brief
- The conversation
- The concept
A follow-up then looks at the school's success in finding the money to turn the creative designs into reality.
