The Architecture of Trees

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

Why are trees talented architects? Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a guided walk in Battery Park City, observe and draw the trees around you to understand how they are like skyscrapers. Learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations.
