Learn more about architecture and design from the comfort of your own home with this free, live, and 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 easy-to-find materials. 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+.  Take a journey back in time without having to leave your own home! We will introduce you to the magical website, Urban Archive, to investigate the Center for Architecture’s past. You are then invited to explore your own neighborhood’s past, after which you can share a sketch and share what you found in your neighborhood. For families who are outside of New York City, links will be provided to some amazing New York City landmarks with incredible pasts: Times Square, Coney Island, and the Empire State Building to name a few.
