Tools of the Trade for Budding Architects

I don’t like to wish my children’s years away, but every so often I hear about activities for kids that makes me wish mine were old enough to participate.  The Young Architects Series: Tools of the Trade is one of them.  Hosted by the Washington Architectural Foundation, the program for ages 10-14 sounds like a fun and engaging introduction to architecture for those with an interest in the field.

The next session, focusing on Site Design, will take place on Saturday, February 4 from 1-3pm at the District Architecture Center.  Here’s a description of the class:

Architectural Ideas for buildings often start with understanding the program of the building, site location & environmental factors. Through a series of sketches, students will learn how to measure and document a building site, develop a design concept and program, and analyze the relationship between the building surroundings and interior spaces.  Participants will complete a Design Concept Sketch/Plan and a Massing model.

Registration is $10, and space is limited, so be sure to reserve a spot soon!  Register online here.

  1. I wish I had a program like that when I was young! Is it any surprise that as a kid, my love for LEGO’s lead me to decide to be an architect?
