HELLO

Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

Family Design Day: Treehouse Design

13 May 10:30am - 12:30pm
Venue: BSA Space
290 Congress Street
Suite 200
Boston
02210

Did you know that a well-designed treehouse can help trees grow stronger and live longer? Learn how architects strive to design buildings that give more to the earth than they take. First create your own tree from cardboard and wood, then design and build a treehouse that treads gently on its branches.

 

This family program is designed for parents and children aged five to 13 years old. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children will be required. Please register both children and adults.

 

Family Design Day programs encourage children and adults to observe, explore, and design together. In these two-hour hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design through exhibition tours, walking tours, or slide shows and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and design educators lead the activities focused on the built environment of Boston and the world.

 

BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through the BSA Space entrance and go up the green staircase. The program begins promptly at start time.
