Wuhan based architects, AA-Lab, have completed a small project with local schoolchildren.

The experimental project invloved 36 children and their parents over 3 months to build a city for children. The young architects from AA-lab allowed the children to sketch out their ideas and lead the design of the project. It was built out of bamboo and the inverted pyramid support covers just 9m2, yet creates 90m2 floor space above. Each child has their own house in the sky.

City in the sky was a response to the  growing number of young architects in China who only know how to design with steel and concrete. It was a way of letting the younger generation know that there are other ways to build cities.
