How do supertall structures stand up to wind, rain, and even earthquakes? They’re also super strong! Architects spend years designing buildings that look beautiful and stand up to the elements. Together, we’ll learn about how skyscrapers are built to be stronger than the weather, then students will take on the role of an architect and construct their own windproof towers! Recommended for ages 6-12. RSVP Required.

Founded in 1996, The Skyscraper Museum is a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. Located in New York City, the world's first and foremost vertical metropolis, the museum celebrates the city's rich architectural heritage and examines the historical forces and individuals that have shaped its successive skylines. Through exhibitions, programs, and publications, the museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence.
