Learn more about architecture and design from the comfort of your own home with these free, live 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 at-home materials.   

All Architecture at Home events require a device with internet connection and camera. All programs are FREE and are open to at-home learners, families, and youth ages 5+.  

A building façade is the front of a building and comes from the Latin word facia, meaning face. What can a building’s face or façade tell us about what goes on inside? We’ll look at several building façades to hone your building detective skills, then teach you our tried-and-true method for drawing any building façade, including one of your own design! 

Materials: Pencil and paper, Illustrated Building Parts vocabulary sheet 

See Architecture at Home Events for upcoming workshops and Architecture at Home Resources for design projects you can do on your own!
