چکیده مقاله

 It is argued that education can influence our sense of responsibility towards diverse aspects of life, including a sustainable future. Like adults, children can also contribute to the idea of preserving our cultural heritage if an appropriate architectural education is provided for them as well. However, teaching architecture to children differs fundamentally to that of adults. This paper reports on the design of one of the very first educational packages for teaching architecture to children in Iran. The architecture educational package, “ArchiKoo”, is aimed at developing children’s creativity and consists of program modules, and instructions.
