Be an architect! Tap into your creativity by stacking, placing and making structures using two and three dimentional forms in a family-oriented building activity at The Fabric Workshop and Museum. Kinds and caregivers will cut and paste windows, gates and doorways onto structures to build a collaborative city. Screen-print your images of Louis Kahn's architectural achievements as an exclusive take-away.

Families will also have an opportunity to take an experiential tour of the exhibition Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture with a professional FWM tour guide. Refreshments will be provided.


Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture is organized by the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, in collaboration with the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and the NAI part of The New Institute, Rotterdam. The exhibition is globally sponsored by Swarovski.
