Science on your Doorstep - Designing a Treehouse Classroom @ Chakrabarti Lecture Theatre, Oxford Brookes University Headington Campus

In 2018, first year architecture students at Oxford Brookes University (OBU) took on a unique real-life design challenge (rather than tackling a fictional brief): to design a treehouse classroom for children; one that might sit in the woodland of the new Science Oxford Centre at Stansfeld Park in Headington in the future.

Hear from the students as they explain the science underpinning the architectural processes of design, material choice and construction. Architects and educators Jane Anderson and Ralph Saull will discuss the value of such ‘live’ projects in design education and the benefits to the local community they engaged with.

Join us for the next event in our Science on Your Doorstep series, where we shine a spotlight on talented people living and working in Headington.
