The Building Exploratory

The Building Exploratory was established in 1996 to help people discover the secrets of their local area, past and present and to involve them in thinking about its future. We offer an innovative approach to built environment education through a permanent exhibition, outreach activities and special projects. Our learning programmes for schools and lifelong learners aim to help people develop a better understanding of the buildings and spaces that surround them. The Building Exploratory aims to:

• create a better built environment
• be a sector leader in built environment education
• provide accessible information about the local built environment
• maintain a relevant and sustainable organisation

Our objectives are to:

• Promote the inclusion of communities in shaping the future of the local area
• Deliver a programme of creative activities that supports learning and debate
• Create innovative exhibitions and resources that empower and inform
• Develop our business model to ensure the sustainability of our organisation
