Birthday party in Arkki

For a birthday party that’s both educational and fun ”Sweet Architecture”, “Sweet City” or “LEGO® -Puzzle City” workshops are memorable and unique events. The party can be arranged at Arkki’s inspiring premises in the Cable Factory. The workshops can be used to teach the rudiments of architecture in a fun way by getting together to construct individual buildings or even whole towns out of tasty materials, under the leadership of an architect-guide. By hands-on building the participating children can discover answers by themselves in a playful way, instead of being told the answers by adults. In these workshops the idea is to inspire the participants to learn more about our built environment and provide knowledge about architecture.

Alternatives for birthday workshops include Sweet Architecture, Sweet City and LEGO® City. All the workshops include an element of fun-learning. Birthday-party workshops last for two hours, the first hour being the construction workshop itself, under the guidance of Arkki, and the second hour consisting of your own birthday-party programme. There is an extra half hour both beforehand for preparations and afterwards for cleaning up.


In the Sweet Architecture workshop, the children build 3-D towers and other buildings in triangulated construction, from sweets and cocktail sticks. This gives them an understanding of geometric forms and durable construction.

The cost is 200 € plus a 5 € charge for materials per participant.


In the Sweet City workshop, the children get together to build a town or village from tasty materials such as biscuits, wafers and uncooked fondant candy.

The cost is 200 € plus a 7 € charge for materials per participant.


In the LEGO® City workshop, each participant builds a city block which forms part of the city as a whole. The workshop begins with an introduction given by the architect-guide.

The cost is 220 € (no charge for materials).


Birthday-party workshops can be organised on weekends, from 16.30 onwards on Saturdays and at any agreed time on Sundays. When the Arkki School of Architecture is on holiday, birthday-party workshops can also be organised on weekdays.
