LEGO Newy 2014

Sat 05 - 26 Apr 2014

LEGO Newy goes FUTURE Newy!

Put your sci-fi goggles on, look to the future and try to imagine the kinds of buildings that architects will design and build in Newcastle in 2050 and beyond. Then turn your vision into reality with LEGO.

We want to see an amazing array of futuristic entries into this year’s FUTURE Newy competition – the more imaginative the better!

The winner will take home a mini IPad generously donated by the Newcastle Division of the Australian Institute of Architects.

ArchiFUN LEGO Workshops

Help your chances of success by attending one of two workshops hosted by the Newcastle Emerging Architects and Graduates Network (EmAGN) in the April school holidays. Learn the basics of architecture and buildings from professional architects then put your new skills to work at our LEGO tables.
