An ai generated image of a futuristic 'nature city' full of tiered apartment buildings and pink cherry blossoms.

The Grant Museum of Zoology invites you to join an exciting family workshop exploring our homes in the not-too-distant future also becoming biodiverse havens for animals.

Calling all budding architects, dreamers and problem solvers. In a world with an increasing population and the need for more houses at odds with a damaging reduction in habitats, perhaps we can rethink our homes to be not just fit for humans but for neighbouring animals too.

Remove the notion of unwanted visitors and household pests and build a roof for birds to nest in... an aardvark tunnel in the basement... a bat roost full of fruit... an insect feeding pool for predators…a temperate rainforest in the backyard. Imagine without boundaries through drawing, collage and paper models. Developed by Museum Learning and Education Consultant, Rosie Fuller.

This workshop is part of UCL Museums & Cultural Programmes 2023-24 event series Architecting Futures from Past Traces, bringing together art, culture and research.


This is an intergenerational workshop, suitable for all ages and abilities. Everyone is welcome.
