Notable Women in Design. A Youth Design Workshop

19 November 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Venue: Adams Street Branch, Boston Public Library
690 Adams Street

Women have been leading figures in the architecture and design professions in the United States since the 19th century. In this hands-on design workshop series led by architects from BSA Space, students will learn about the women that have shaped the designed world from furniture to urban planning.


Each week we will explore a different design discipline and learn about the pioneering women who influenced and created some of our most beautiful and livable places and spaces including Jane Jacobs, Ray Eames, Zaha Hadid and Maya Lin.


Using art, math, social studies, science and language arts skills, each class will include a hands-on design project (including drawing and/or model building) based on the theme of the week. This program is for students in grade five–seven.

This event is the first in a series of four workshops. Registration to all four events is NOT required to attend. The dates for all four workshops are as follows:


Monday, October 22, 2018 | 4:30–6:00 pm Monday, October 29, 2018 | 4:30–6:00 pm Monday, November 5, 2018 | 4:30–6:00 pm Monday, November 19, 2018 | 4:30–6:00 pm
