Family Design Day: Facades of Cuba

How do architects use color, texture, shadow, rhythm, and pattern to design a building’s façade? From baroque balustrades to art deco grillwork, Cuban architecture is replete with masterful details. This month, families will view the exhibition Road to Revolution: A 30 Day Journey Across Cuba for inspiration to create their own building facades. The group will then combine all of their designs to form a streetscape that would fit right in to Havana.

This family program is designed for parents and children aged five to 13 years old. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children will be required. Please register both children and adults. 

Volunteer opportunities are available for this event. 

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.

Your registration includes acceptance of the BSA Space photo release and consent policy.

Registrants to this event will be added to the BSA Space mailing list for updates on future public programs and exhibitions. Registrants may unsubscribe at any time. Email addresses will not be shared or sold to third parties.
