Adventures in Architecture for Kids

Vicky Chan

Description

Adventures in Architecture for Kids introduces children to the design challenges faced by architects today, including choosing materials, designing for diverse users and considering the environment. Offering a world of possibilities for learning math, engineering, history, social studies, planning, geography, art and design, this rich educational resource includes hands-on projects that allow kids to experiment, design, build, succeed, fail and try again.

  • Complete building challenges with corrugated cardboard and geodesic forms
  • Look at how designers have solved impossible problems of gravity and space with creations such as suspension bridges, the Loretto helix staircase and Brunelleschi's dome
  • Explore how materials can be used in interesting ways – how paper can go from flimsy to structural, for instance
  • Participate in family game playing: client and design team – finding creative ways to meet a client's wish list
  • Engage in pure imaginative archi-doodling
