Family Day: Language of Architecture at Center for Architecture

Family Day: Language of Architecture

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Do you speak architecture? In this program, families will learn to "read" buildings for clues about their design and function as they observe and sketch architectural elements through an interactive slide show and neighborhood walk (weather permitting). Families will then design their own scale model of a building to take home.
