We build job creators, not job seekers! Arkki aims to provide children with new capacities, means, and mediums to influence the creation of our future environment, no matter what their occupation will be. Arkki Singapore provides creative education to 7 to 19 year old kids using architecture and design projects as holistic real-world phenomena.

Arkki inspires children to learn through an inquiry-based approach and hands-on experimentation. The student’s themselves ask the questions, explore the options, process the information and find their own answers. Creativity blended with Architecture offers endless possibilities for S.T.E.A.M. education by enabling children to effectively visualize and construct 3D representations of ideas to holistically understand and master S.T.E.A.M. subjects.
