    Design Enthusiasts

Come to BSA Space and get ready for lift off on a tour of Canstruction 2016! Inspired by this year’s theme—“Journey Into Space”—local design teams competed to create the most compelling structures made of canned goods. After the tour, design your own space vehicle using recycled materials.

Canstruction is a charity and exhibition in which teams of architects, designers, engineers, and contractors compete to display colossal sculptures made of canned goods—all for a good cause. Materials from Canstruction are donated to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.

If you would like to bring nonperishable food items, they will be donated to Merrimack Valley Food Bank.

This family program is designed for caregivers and children aged five to 13 years old. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children will be required. Tickets required for children and adults. Tickets are $10 per person ($8 Friends of BSA Space* and BSA Members).

Family Design Day programs encourage children and adults to observe, explore, and design together. In these two-hour hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design through exhibit tours, walking tours, or slide shows and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and design educators lead the activities focused on the built environment of Boston and the world.

BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through the BSA Space entrance and go up the green staircase. The program begins promptly at start time.
