Junior Architects: Designing and Building My New Home

In 1908, Frederick Robie, a young Chicago businessman, hired Frank Lloyd Wright to build a modern home for his family. Robie wanted a house with wide open rooms filled with light, and great views of the surrounding neighborhood. Robie described his new home as “the most ideal place in the world.”

What would your ideal home look like? Would it have a pool, a green roof, lots of windows, or how about an indoor slide instead of stairs? Let your imagination run wild and try your hand at constructing your perfect home from cardboard and found objects. Supplies will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own objects to add to their constructions.
