The Architecture School for Children TASC (formerly known as 'Places') is a community Interest Company working across Greater Manchester. Over the past 20 years, it has worked with children and communities with the aim of engaging them effectively in their built environments. It does this through bringing together schools, artist, developers, architects, educators, children and the wider community to look at and contribute to the development, design and build of their environment in a creative and collaborative way.

TASC works in partnership with a number of organisations including One Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Manchester, local schools and community based organisations.
