Applications for The Bartlett Outreach's free, 'Walking the City' summer school are now open. Created in collaboration with STORE, students will discover how trainers are made, what materials are used, and where they are produced. They will have the opportunity to design and make your very own trainer designed for the urban explorer, guided by some of the best architects and designers working in London. 
The aim of this course is to introduce participants to a wide range of ideas and processes that can be found in an undergraduate course at The Bartlett School of Architecture.


To attend, participants should be:

  • attending a non-selective UK state school
  • currently in Year 11 or 12
  • on track to meet the minimum entry requirements to study for an undergraduate degree at The Bartlett
  • have achieved or predicted a Grade 5/C or above in GCSE English and Mathematics
