Experience architecture hands-on and “Build Your City” from the ground up. You’ll be given your own plot of “land” to build on. What kind of building will you design and create? What materials will you use? How does it fit into your neighborhood? As you construct buildings, parks, and bridges, you’ll learn how a city comes together and what makes them great.
This free come and go activity is fun for all ages. Stay for a minute or a while!
