URBAN FOLD Workshop: Build a Paper Metropolis

  • Center for Architecture and Design 1218 Arch Street Philadelphia, PA, 19107 United States (map)

This event is organized and presented by the Center for Architecture and Design.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to plan and build the paper metropolis of your dreams! This 90-minute workshop was custom designed for the Center for Architecture and Design by a Stanford professor. Kids will warm up with some rapid prototyping and 3-dimensional thinking exercises, then dive deep into their imaginations to collaboratively plan and build their dream city using Paper Punk kits (think LEGO meets Origami). "Design Thinking" concepts and techniques will guide the kids to a visually delightful hands-on model building experience. Yes, you can be anything they want to be…and for 90 minutes, everyone gets to be an architect! Ideal for ages 8-12
