Excerpts from the publication:

This publication builds on key themes that emerged from the international conference held in Edinburgh, in October 2010, Making Space 2010: Architecture and Design for Children and Young People. It also provides a showcase for the winning and many of the shortlisted entries to the associated Making Space 2010 International Award.

The conference was organised by Children in Scotland, funded by the Scottish Government and held in partnership with the OECD's Centre for Effective Learning Environments and Architecture and Design Scotland. It promoted innovation, creativity and sustainability in design for children and young people aged 0-18. International experts explored how children related to their environment, how it impacts on their learning, the implications of Curriculum for Excellence on building and space design and what we need to focus on in the future.

The International Award focused on excellence and innovation in architecture and design for children and young people. It attracted entries from 26 counties.


Making Space 2010 showcases examples of spaces across the world that will enhance the lives of the children, young people and communities using them. It has also provided an international platform for the discussion and sharing of ideas that we hope will help to keep the wheel of innovation turning.
