The 6th Architecture for Kids program hosted 31 eager children.

Encouraging children to give expression to their creativity, the program pioneered by Balinese architect Popo Danes exposes children to the core values of design through working with drawings and simple paperwork models.

According to Popo, these activities attempt to introduce the profession of an architect as well as giving the participants the opportunity to explore interests and talents while stimulating their creativity.

Leading this year's group of children were architect Popo Danes and Melati Danes Interior.

Three sessions are presented to the children. The first is a drawing program in which kids are given a chance to sketch their dream house. Then the young participants are given a tour of an architect’s office to become familiar with the working environment of architecture. Finally, the kids work with three-dimensional paperwork construction from which to construct a model of their dream house.

During the first session the children are given the chance to express their creativity individually by drawing their dream house on A3 size paper. After finishing their drawing, they are instructed to color their design following which each participant explains their “dream house” to the others in the group.

One of the participants, 9 years old Khalil, drew a very imaginative mansion house with a big garage and cars and a lots of windows. Another child, 8-year-old Zeph, drew a house using solar panel explaining his house would help the earth become green. He also designed his house to include lots of sport equipments.

The drawing and coloring session finished, the participants enjoyed lunch together. The next session, a tour of an architecture office began after lunch. The children were exposed to the working atmosphere of professional architects and see the many tools and materials used in their field of work. The group seemed particularly impressed with the 3-dimensional mock-ups of projects being developed at the office.

The third session of day allowed the participants to create their own simple 3-dimensional mock-ups. Working with craft paper, the children first had to determine the number of rooms and layout of their mock-up before beginning to shape the craft paper. The kids enjoyed picking colors, shapes and deciding what exterior elements to add to the mock-up including, plants, swimming pools and event pets.

After making presentations regarding their individuals projects the group posed for a photo together with their projects,
