Suggested Ages: 5 to 14+

FREE

Learn more about architecture and design from home with free, live, and online Architecture at Home workshops led by Center for Architecture educators. Each session explores an architectural topic through virtual tours, interactive lessons and discussions, and gets kids started on a design project they can complete on their own with easy-to-find materials.

How will we live in the future? What can we learn from the past to help guide us? Look back to the very first homes ever built here by Native American tribes. These green builders used local, natural materials to create dwellings that were well-suited to the climate and their lifestyles, keeping our built and natural environments in balance. Let these inspire your own designs for a home of the future that carries these ideals into the next century. Family design teams encouraged.
