Students on this creative Summer School will get the chance to build their own collaborative model city inspired by the real city of Canterbury and the writings in Italo Calvino's book, “Invisible Cities”. Starting with the question, ‘How can the real and the fiction inform the creation of a new fantastic metropolis?’, this hands-on workshop will give you the opportunity to develop your own architectural thinking through drawing and model making.

N.B. A non-residential option is available for this Summer School. If you would only like to attend during the day, please include this in your personal statement on the application form.

Allocation will be based on your personal statement where we would like to see an evident passion for the subject and an interest in studying a creative subject at a higher level. Priority will be given to the year groups specified but we encourage applications from all year groups. 

Applications are now closed for our Summer School - Architecture - Canterbury. If you are still interested in applying would you please email us at
