Family Design Day with Learning by Design

Families will tour the exhibit Reprogramming the City: Opportunities for Urban Infrastructure to learn how designers have re-purposed urban spaces and places for new uses. We’ll then go out into the city and, using a kit of parts, re-purpose a section of the Fort Point waterfront to create play spaces. Register.

Family Design Days, hosted by Learning By Design in Massachusetts, encourage children and adults to observe, explore and design together. In these 2 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. Family Design Days take place one Saturday a month at BSA Space (unless otherwise noted) and are designed for children ages 5 – 13 years old, accompanied by an adult – a maximum ratio of 3 children per 1 adult will be required. Unless noted otherwise, admission is $8/person (child and adult); registration strongly recommended.
