For this Family Day, we will take inspiration from the Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition. This annual competition invites architecture firms to think about how a Valentine sent from the heart of Times Square could express love for everyone. We will look at the various designs for this public piece of art and then, as a family, you will design and build your own model of a 3D Valentine for NYC! Family Day Programs are designed for children ages 5 - 13 years old, accompanied by an adult.
