Sir John Soane intended his Museum to be a place where architects could learn about and be inspired by architecture. Our architectural clubs for young people carry on this tradition.
We currently run two clubs: Young Architects' Club (YAC) and New Architects' Club (NAC); each has a limit of 20 children.
The Young Architects' Club is for children aged between 7-10 years old. It meets on the first Saturday of the month and the children look at a different architecture-related theme each year. This year their theme is 'Masters of Materials.'
New Architects' Club is for older children, those aged 11-14, and also meets on the first Saturday of the month. This year the children will be working in collaboration with Fluid Architectural Practice to design an imagined pavilion for Lincoln's Inn Fields.
Each club has an annual membership fee of £100 payable in full at the start of the academic year.
