Learners will develop an understanding of how architects design buildings through exploring an example of amazing architecture in Minecraft: Education Edition. Learners will research and collect examples of interesting or unusual buildings from around the world and explore why these buildings are unique. Following their research, learners will plan, design and build their own examples of amazing architecture in Minecraft: Education Edition.

Learners will then create video walkthroughs to present their amazing architecture to a wider audience.
