Six pupils from Year 8 visited the Ferens Art Gallery last week to take part in a project called 'Build a Pavilion.'
The project, organised by the Serpentine Gallery in London, travels around the UK aiming to inspire young people in the field of design.
Alongside other schools, our six pupils had to design their own pavilion - a free space to be used by the local community.
They could draw inspiration from many areas and had to consider what material they would use and where it would be positioned.
To start with, they did a 'neighbourhood map' of the area between their home and school, and considered landmarks and current public spaces.
They then thought about what kinds of public spaces they would like to see, which included a relaxing place full of hammocks and beds, a community performance space, and a tree house library.
After developing their ideas a little further, they were given iPads and Apple drawing pens, and asked to sketch their idea in 3D app software.
Their ideas will be uploaded onto the project website for all to see.
All pupils really enjoyed their afternoon at Ferens and also got to view the Turner Prize exhibition in the process.
