Let’s bring nature into the city! Today, it’s more important than ever for architects to think about how to make their buildings green. Climate change means that cities need buildings that are healthier and more environmentally friendly. Kids will learn about the characteristics that help a building conserve energy and how architects bring plants and green spaces into their designs. Then, drawing inspiration from global green towers, young architects will redesign some New York skyscrapers incorporating these ideas! Ages 4+. 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.
