The Center for Architecture promotes public understanding and appreciation of architecture and design through educational programs for K-12 students and teachers, families, and the general public.

Nurture your budding architect through free, online Architecture At Home activities. These short, easy to follow design projects use simple materials to get kids exploring.

Outside of the current COVID-19 pandemic, our programs take place at the Center for Architecture and in schools and community sites throughout the New York metropolitan area.

K-12 educational programs are supported, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council, the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation Philanthropic Arts Program, Con Edison, and generous donations from Carol Loewenson, FAIA; Judy T. Hunt; John B. Simoni, Jr. Esq; Christina R. Davis; Sharon Liebowitz; Sciame; Loci Architecture; CNY Group; COOPER ROBERTSON; Loring Consulting Engineers; Deborah Berke & Partners Architects; Delacour Family Foundation; Katie Devlin; Steven Holl Architects; Tom Krizmanic, AIA; Kenneth Lewis, AIA and Jennifer Orkin Lewis; Linda Yowell, FAIA; Zetlin & De Chiara; AKF; and generous individual and corporate donors.

Join the Center for Architecture’s K-12 Education Department for a mindful movement and design experiment with DANCITECTURE, open to all ages from 4-5:30 pm. DANCITECTURE founder and Center for Architecture Design Educator Kimberly Tate will help us slow down and explore how our bodies and our city create and shape space, as we move through a labyrinth in the closed street in front of the Center. Participants will also be invited to draw their own design ideas for activating this space for other purposes.
