The Architecture Explorations program encourages Pittsburgh youth to look closely at their built environment, be open to creative expression, ask questions, think critically, and understand civic responsibility - all through the lens of architecture. This fall, all ages will explore urban design and active cities. K-2 students will learn about transportation and how cities are designed around the movement of people. 3-5 graders will look at ways architecture relates to the human body, through proportions, systems, health, environmental factors, emotions, and more. Middle school students will learn how water shapes our environment, and how to improve a local neighborhood. Lastly, high school students will learn how a local Pittsburgh community defines "recreation" and how to design small and large places for communities to enjoy active lifestyles in their neighborhood.
