What if you put pupils in charge of improving their schools?
The Sorrell Foundation commissioned madmac to create films documenting the Joinedupdesignforschools project in over 80 schools throughout the UK.  The project joins up top UK designers and architects  with schools to demonstrate how design and creativity can improve the quality of life and learning to children in schools.  Featuring Paul Smith, Thomas Heatherwick, Marks Barfield, Richard Rogers, Judge Gill and Kevin McCloud
The students briefed the designers and architects to design inspiring learning and social spaces. During the process, the students discovered a host of new skills such as problem-solving, reasoning, teamworking, communication, negotiation. The experience also helped to boost their self-belief.  Each film tells a different school’s story from the initial concept to the final presentation of their ideas.
