Family Afternoon: Design with Nature

Events / Family Afternoon: Design with Nature

At the National Building Museum you’ll get a new perspective on the buildings, cities, and streets. We are the only museum that brings to life the greatest stories of architecture, engineering, construction and design with interactive, hands-on exhibitions and activities.

At the Design with Nature Family Afternoon visitors will examine how nature is intentionally integrated into the built world, different ways people design with nature, and how nature can inspired design in and around built spaces. You will learn about symbolism of the natural world across cultures and make connections between springtime symbolism, design, nature, and the built world they live in.

This free family event for all ages will feature creative hands-on activities, a community garden design project, and opportunities to learn about Japanese art and design. Featured Museum exhibitions include The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin and Around the World in 80 Paper Models.
