Towers made of jellybeans and spaghetti, giant football domes and the man who designed the London Shard.
They’re all highlights of a national festival to celebrate the best – and weirdest – in British design.
And it’s coming to town.
The festival, which runs from June 12 to 21, includes fun family events as well as serious talks for architecture professionals and aficionados.
Part of the fun comes on June 20 and 21 when Greenhead Park bowling pavilion hosts a city making challenge where children and their parents can make buildings out of craft materials for Lego prizes.
They can also build towers out of plastic jellybeans and spaghetti with more Lego prizes for the best and tallest structure.
There’s also the chance to assemble a football-inspired dome and build a ‘500 Words Pavilion’ based on words and music.
Holmfirth Picturedrome will be the venue for ‘Lost Rivers’ a film about rivers and a subterranean world which have disappeared from view due to urban development.
The event, on June 19 (6.30pm), includes talks from waterway experts, activists and architects.
There will also be an exhibition of work by architecture students at Huddersfield University from until June 19.
And as an epilogue to the festival there will be a talk from Barry Ainsworth, the man who designed the London Shard, at Huddersfield University, on November 10.
Dan Kerr, chair of Huddersfield Society of Architects, which is running this year’s festival, said: “Our 2015 program has expanded from last year. As you can see we have a range activity types from film shows, to hands on construction.”
Mr Kerr added: “We’re delighted to be running these fun events to help inspire people who are interested in the buildings that surround us.
“We would love you to join in and enjoy getting involved with your built environment.”
