Winter/Spring 2024 Series:

The Winter/Spring 2024 Teen Workshops 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!

Generation Green:

What can we learn from the past that will help us ensure a safe future for all living things on earth? The buildings we live, work, and play in use a lot of energy and have added a significant amount of carbon dioxide to our atmosphere which is warming our planet. Discover how architects today are exploring ways to live and build greener by reexamining the materials we use to make our lives comfortable. Taking inspiration for the Generation Proxima exhibition on view at the Center for Architecture, students will build a model of a green building using recycled and natural materials that may help to point us toward a healthier future.

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.
