You and your special school class are warmly welcome to visit us at the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design (ArkDes). We adapt our programme to your needs and your students’ capabilities.
The exhibitions will be closed during 18 March – 1 June due to rebuilding and there will not be any school activities. The school programmes start again in the autumn.
We customise the programme to your needs and your students’ capabilities to ensure that you all get the most out of your visit. This may mean that you will be admitted to the museum before it opens so that your students can focus without distractions. Or that we divide up your visit into two sessions, offering you a preview of the museum layout so that everyone can feel safe and secure. Do you have your own ideas about how to structure your visit to us? You are most welcome to contact us so we can organise a structure that suits you and your students.
Times, prices and the number of students will vary depending on your needs.
Design the City!
The Public Luxury exhibition is about how architecture and design can help us to reflect on our society. We see Zlatan’s house in Malmö, life-saving design, a new mosque in Rinkeby, and cobblestones that obstruct accessibility. We learn history by playing Battlefield, and everyone can use a dance pavilion from Dansbana! Where do we dare to move around in Stockholm at night-time, and why do they want to move the snack bar in Oskarshamn?
The diversity of the exhibition provokes all kinds of discussions about the city and its accessibility for everybody. The schools programme is adapted to the age of the students. It begins with a tour and discussion about the exhibition, followed by a workshop in the ArkDes studio.
Architecture x 5
Five sessions where we look at antiquity, the Middle Ages, how to build tall, sturdy buildings, architectural forms, and then finish with building a city.
We focus on the geometric shapes that exist in buildings. This includes drawing a building and cutting out the geometric shapes that we identify to make a collage.
Architecture and design
We discover architecture through our senses by hitting the roof, calling out in the different rooms, and entering a secret room made of air. We construct a feeling that you can take home with you using colours in a room.
Please notify us of any changes or cancellations no later than three days before your booked guided tour. Otherwise you will be charged the full fee for the tour.
