The Library is partnering with the Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati to offer Design Lab: a weekly series of classes for 3rd through 75th graders on architecture and design. In the program, we’ll use recycled materials to construct scale models of buildings that the students design.
This year’s building theme is dwellings! Students will create a model of a dwelling for a “client” of their choosing. Each session, our group will meet up for a short lesson on design principles, and then participate in a building activity afterward. In some sessions, we’ll have a project manager from a construction management company come speak about the real world of architecture. In later meet-ups, we’ll focus exclusively on building our scale models using recycled materials. At the end of the program, the participants will be judged based on their design, and the winning design will be featured at the Cincinnati Public Library.
The program will meet every week on Tuesday evenings, 5:30-7:30, from January 7th to April 21st, for a total of 16 sessions.
Registration for this event closed January 7th at 5:30 pm.
Ages 8 to 11. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
