Family Workshops are a great way for parents and children to learn about architecture together. In September, our building adventure will involve unusual model building materials and one cosmic premise...Extensive lava flow covers the surface of a newly colonized planet.  It’s our job to rethink how humans might thrive in an environment where flooding, air pollution and low water supply is common.  Join us as we explore upcycling and biomimicry to design a portable habitat from a “kit of parts” inspired by space exploration and science fiction!
