Ideal for ages 9-12
Roll up your sleeves and get ready to plan and build the paper metropolis of your dreams! This 90-minute workshop was custom designed for the Center for Architecture and Design by a Stanford d.school professor. Kids will warm up with some rapid prototyping and 3-dimensional thinking exercises, then dive deep into their imaginations to collaboratively plan and build their dream city using Paper Punk kits (think LEGO meets Origami). "Design Thinking" concepts and techniques will guide the kids to a visually delightful hands-on model building experience. Yes, you can be anything they want to be…and for 90 minutes, everyone gets to be an architect!
About DESIGN + BUILD Workshops
Dive into the design process with our DESIGN + BUILD workshops. Have fun as you and your child learn about design, build a project from your imagination, and hone your creative problem-solving skills. We offer new workshops each month (more often during our Constructing Play exhibition), so you can come again and again to work with others and build something amazing!
