In the online lesson programme Spacesoup, Dutch secondary school students learn about architecture and design through the objects and buildings around them – their own homes, possessions and cities.


Premsela has developed Spacesoup with the Netherlands Architecture Institute and the Netherlands Architecture Fund in the belief that young people should understand the power of architecture and design.

The Spacesoup lesson programme focuses on the designing process. Pupils carry out design assignments, coached by their teachers, who can consult an online instructor’s manual.

Alongside the main Spacesoup lessons for arts classes in HAVO and VWO programmes, VMBO pupils have their own course, Culture Clash, which looks at different cultures that have left a mark on the Netherlands. All modules are available (in Dutch only) on the Spacesoup website.
