All Architecture at Home events require a device with internet connection and camera. Workshops are FREE and are open to all at-home learners, families, and youth ages 5+.  Skyscrapers are incredible structures! Learn about the structural systems that support tall buildings as we look at different examples of skyscrapers from around the world.
