Family Design Day @ BSA Space: Design Your Dream Room
Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 10:30 AM
Join Learning By Design in Massachusetts as we continue our 2013 series of Family Design Day Programs at BSA Space.
Design your Dream Room – have you always dreamed of designing your own space to do everything you love to do? In February, families will think about how design – shape, color, size, materials, and character – can influence how a space is used and enjoyed. Then design your own room to suit your needs, personality and activities, with one catch, space is not unlimited. Designers will be challenged to create the perfect personal space in a defined amount of square footage – sometimes bigger is not always better!
This Family Day Program is designed for parents and children ages 5 – 13 years old, a maximum ratio of 1 adult per 3 children will be required. Tickets are $8 per person, children and adults. BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through the BSA Space entrance and come up the Green Stairs.
Family Design Day Programs 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.
