*FULL* Family Design Day: Dream Dwellings

This event is now *FULL*, click here to view upcoming events.

This month, Family Design Day will be taking inspiration from the exhibition Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie and following Moshe Safdie FAIA’s design principle (and book of the same name), For everyone a garden, participants will transform a basic shoe box into a dream apartment with unique green space that reflects the goals of Habitat ’67, the 1960s housing complex that launched the architect’s career.

This family program is designed for parents and children aged five to 13 years old. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children is required. Tickets are $10 per person (both adults and children), $8 for 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 slideshows 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 (or universe!).
