This young writers’ workshop in Sydney by architects LAVA is parading as an embassy for Martians on earth
LAVA worked alongside producer Will O’Rourke and arts organisation The Glue Society to design the centre for creative writing charity The Sydney Story Factory, who organise classes where children can develop imaginative writing skills.
A skeleton of plywood ribs surrounds the space, integrating seating, counters and shelves.
Travel essentials for Martians fill the display areas and can be purchased at a plywood counter, while the workshop desks are located just beyond.
“The concept is to awaken creativity in kids,” explains LAVA director Chris Bosse, ”so the design acts as a trigger, firing up the engines of imagination”.
