Design the future of Hackney: A competition for Hackney primary schools
Primary schools in Hackney are being invited to take part in a competition to create a model of what they think housing in Hackney will look like in the future.
The project forms part of the ‘Celebrating 50 years of Hackney’ programme of activities that’s encouraging local residents to share in the diverse and rich history of the borough’s past and present times; and to help shape its future.
The winning school with the most innovative and creative 3D model will be rewarded with £500. Two runners up will receive £150 in each.
We hope that lots of primary schools and children get involved in this exciting project and we are looking forwarding to seeing their imaginative creations.
A local architectural firm will form part of the judging panel and winners will be announced in September. Participating schools will need to complete an entry form and submit their models to the Hackney Homes Resident Participation Team before 17 July 2015.
A personal collection of old photographs supplied by residents of the borough from 1965 to the present, is on display at Hackney Museum for the next two weeks.
