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 Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the NYC Council, the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation Philanthropic Arts Program, and New York Building Foundation, and generous donations from Carol Loewenson, FAIA; John B. Simoni, Jr. Esq; Christina R. Davis; Sharon Liebowitz; Sciame; Loci Architecture; CNY Group; COOPER ROBERTSON; Loring Consulting Engineers; Deborah Berke & Partners Architects; Katie Devlin; Tom Krizmanic, AIA; Vanguard Construction & Development; Linda Yowell, FAIA; Zetlin & De Chiara; and generous individual and corporate donors.
