Questioning the relationship between humans and the built environment...

'Grow Me a Home' is an interactive, thought-provoking workshop and exhibition, exploring the questions: 'Could we grow our own homes?', 'How do we want to live?'

We are surrounded by buildings and spend up to 90% of our time in them. Looking at what we have now, the kinds of spaces we live in and how we currently build and the materials we use, the exhibition asks: 'Could we not do this differently?' Could we not design buildings that are joyful, waste nothing, generate their own power, cost nothing to run, only take what they need from the surrounding, heal themselves and make those living there happier, more productive and healthier?

The exhibition starts Thursday 27 June with a series of workshop, specifically for primary schools, and will be part of the Lancashire Science Festival on Saturday 29 June. The exhibition will then remain open to all until Friday 12 July.
