Atlas helps Arkki and Unicef Vietnam train future architects

Oct 9, 2018 | Press release | 0 comments

Supporting our people in their passions is important to us – as is ensuring we inspire the next generation of architects.

In August 2018 Atlas supported two of our talented architects, Lam Xuan and Pham Phuong to volunteer at one of Arkki’s workshops with children and young people in Vietnam.

This was part of a series of summer workshops “Children Innovate: Smart and Child-Friendly City” organised by Arkki in collaboration with Unicef Vietnam as part of Unicef’s global ‘Child Friendly City’ initiative. Groups of children and young people aged between 8 – 14 learned about design thinking, the urban design process and make a prototype of their ideas of a child-friendly city. older children used 3D augmented reality in their design projects and the results will be exhibited during Saigon Innovation Week, October 15-20.

Supporting our people to follow their passions and volunteer in community initiatives is important to Atlas and sharing our role models, particularly our female architects and engineers, will showcase what a welcoming, creating and exciting industry Atlas works in.
