SKYSCRAPER MUSEUM FAMILY PROGRAM: SUPERTALL FORMS: INSPIRED BY NATURE!

The Skyscraper Museum 39 Battery Place, New York

Let’s get ready for Earth Day! Did you know that architects often design buildings inspired by nature? The China Resources Tower in Shenzhen, China is nicknamed “Spring Bamboo,” because it looks like a new shoot emerging from the ground. After a tour of the SUPERTALL exhibition, young architects will create their own skyscrapers designs using recycled materials. Ages 6+.
