We believe our cities can be better by inspiring and empowering the next generation of thinkers and city makers - kids.
By participating in our engaging hands-on programmes, kids develop an understanding of the role we can all play in shaping the world around us to have better communities and a more sustainable future with inclusive, resilient and creative cities.
For every group of children, there is a workbench and one real architect, inspiring and supervising the kids following that day’s theme. The imagination of the children is stimulated by a slideshow reflecting the day’s topic. Architects and volunteers work together annually to make these workshops a success.
We bring kids of all ages together to experience, explore and understand their city in a new way with a focus on future needs.
We help kids to explore what a city is, who makes cities and how we live, move, work and play.
We promote the role of kids as citizens by giving opportunities to engage with city projects

We live in a world where things are designed and made by adults. In their creation, they tend to think more about how to improve the lives of adults.
One big mistake is to think that we need to do everything for the children, thus restricting them from doing even simple tasks like turning on lights and opening doors.
What if we let the children be free to develop their abilities by themselves?
That is why in ArkA, we make everything fit for both adults and children.
