  • Center for Architecture
  • 536 LaGuardia Place, New York
  • Young elementary, Tween
  • FREE

Learn more about architecture and design from the comfort of your own home with our 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+. Building ornaments are used to decorate buildings. Sometimes, they also give us clues about a building's function or when it was built. Look at a variety of different building ornaments and then you will make your own using a simple salt dough recipe!
