Learn more about architecture and design from the comfort of your own home with these free, live online Architecture at Home workshops led by Center for Architecture educators. Each 45-minute session explores an architectural topic through virtual tours, interactive, lessons and discussions, and gets kids started on a design project they can complete on their own with at-home materials. All Architecture at Home events require a device with internet connection and camera. All programs are FREE and are open to at-home learners, families, and youth ages 5+.  The word window comes from the old Norse for “wind eye,” or the eye of the building that lets the wind in. Windows are also our eyes to the world outside. Learn more about the many different types of windows architects use, from fanlights to eyebrow windows, then design your own window to frame a favorite view. Advanced registration required.
