Building brainstorms will be closed for a private event Dec 2nd - Dec 6th 


Nov. 15, 2016 - Dec. 31, 2016


Building Brainstorm invites children and their families to explore the built environment through hands-on investigation of building forms, features, materials, and the architectural design process. This fantasy architecture studio presents children with building design challenges to research and solve. Kids and adults can have fun experimenting with building materials and engineering problems as well as investigating how choices about light, form, structure, and organization impacts a building's design. Various interactive "workbenches" and "job sites" encourage young visitors to explore the process of building and the nature of architecture by coming up with solutions to common engineering and architectural challenges. The exhibition features architectural artifacts and models and is a bilingual exhibit with Spanish and English exhibit text.
