With your support, you can help the Center for Architecture to fulfill its mission of educating a broad public about the power of architecture.

2020 has proven to be difficult year for us all. While many other design education programs were cancelled following the pandemic, our team quickly pivoted to a virtual format to successfully convert after-school programs, summer camps, vacation camps, Student Day workshops, and Learning by Design:NY architectural residencies to remote learning. We’re proud that: 

  • This summer, after reducing class sizes and mailing customized program kits to participants, 350 students in grades 3-12 joined us virtually for week-long hands-on design programs that deepened their passion for architecture. 
  • We expanded our reach to engage kids all over the country and give new opportunities to budding architects as far away as California, Florida, Canada, Sweden, and South Africa.
  • We converted our Student Day workshops and Learning By Design:NY residencies to online, live, educator-led classes.
  • We launched Architecture at Home, a free online resource that showcases step-by-step instructions to architecture and design projects for kids, families, and teachers. 
  • In 2021, we will add live virtual workshops to grow Architecture at Home even more. 

As the holiday season approaches, we hope you will consider making a 100% tax-deductible contribution. Proceeds raised from #GivingTuesday will have a direct impact on the students, families and schools we serve.
