The Architecture of Trees at The Skyscraper Museum

The Architecture of Trees

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

Outdoors, meet at The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a walk through Wagner Park, in Battery Park City, you will draw the trees around you to understand their likeness to skyscrapers! The structures of trees and skyscrapers have a lot in common and you will learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations. Recommended for 2nd-5th grade.
