Family Design Day: [Doll]Houses Have Stories

The BSA Foundation is bringing Family Design Days on the road to the Concord Museum. In this hands-on program led by architects from the BSA Foundation, families will first explore the exhibition The Art and Mystery of the Dollhouse to learn how artisans created dollhouses to tell stories—stories of a place and time, of fashion and interior design, and even of fictional inhabitants. After the tour, families will design a dwelling for their own miniature people’s stories using recycled materials. This family program is designed for parents and children aged five to 13.

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.

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.
