Center for Architecture: K-12 Education

Little builders and future architects will love these short at-home design projects from the Center for Architecture at the American Institute of Architecture New York (AIANY). Architecture and urban planning concepts are explored in the context of New York City. Grown-ups will appreciate that all of the projects call for basic materials found at home. Many require nothing more than paper and a pencil (for example, "Complete the Missing Half of a Symmetrical Building"). Digital activities introduce kids to useful online resources and only need a device with internet access, such as "Then and Now Using the Urban Archive," which looks at historical images of New York City. To check out the site's offerings, readers should click the "Architecture at Home" link. Video demos of some of the activities are on the AIANY Center for Architecture's Instagram page (@centerforarch) in the K-12 education story highlight. The Center for Architecture is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, among other organizations.
