One event on February 26, 2021 at 11:00 am

Suggested Ages: 5 to 12


Learn more about architecture and design from the comfort of your own home with free, live, and online Architecture at Home workshops led by Center for Architecture educators. Each 45-minute 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.

Hats and roofs have a lot in common! Both can be designed to protect you from the cold, from too much sun, or from getting wet in the rain. Just like hats, roofs are also a great way for a building to be fashionable and distinctive in the skyline. Learn about the many different types of roofs, then design (and wear) your own rooftop hat.
