In Creative Architecture, children will learn & practice elements of structural design. They’ll build three dimensional structures & buildings using a wide range of materials (including clay, wood blocks, cardboards, foam boards, discarded material, etc.). They’ll learn how architects combine functional needs for a building with designs that excite their imaginations. In this introduction to the discipline of architecture, they’ll identify needs, frame problems, work collaboratively, explore and appreciate the contexts within which a solution must work, weigh alternatives, and communicate their ideas verbally, graphically, and in three dimensions.
