SoHo’s Cast Iron Architecture Saturday, October 23rd, 11am - 1pm

Children and parents looking up at buildings.

Armed with magnets, we'll explore SoHo's historic cast iron buildings to see how this new material and construction system transformed SoHo from a residential area to the commercial hotspot it is today. Back at the Center for Architecture, kids will design their own building facades in the SoHo style. 

This program is SOLD OUT. To be added to the waitlist, please email and indicate the number of adult and child tickets you would like to be waitlisted for.

Language of Architecture Saturday, November 20th, 11am - 1pm

Adult and child working on an art project

Do you speak architecture? In this program, families will learn to “read” buildings for clues about their design and function as they observe and sketch architectural elements through an interactive slide show and neighborhood walk (weather permitting). Families will then design their own scale model of a building to take home.
