Winter/Spring 2023 Series:

The Design Discovery Winter/Spring 2023 series will focus on developing fundamental architectural design skills and exploring the architecture of New York City. Each workshop focuses on a different core lesson that will help high school students explore their interest in architecture as well as hone skills that will be helpful for portfolio development. These workshops are open to all levels of architecture and art experience. Attend all four sessions, or just select the workshops that appeal most to you! 


Join the Center for Architecture for a day of design exploration in SoHo, one of New York City’s hippest historic districts. This unique neighborhood is a fascinating mix of old and new, home to trendy boutiques, innovative new buildings, and the largest collection of 19th century cast-iron buildings in the world. After an introduction to key design elements, we’ll explore this area’s architectural treasures on foot, then return to the Center after a lunch break for a design workshop where you’ll create a new building to fit in this historic district. A great project for your design portfolio! 

All materials will be provided. Lunch will not be provided. All students will be dismissed for a lunch break from 12pm – 1pm. Students may bring lunch to eat at the Center if desired.
