Budding Architects Discover Home Is a Gift

Friday, December 18, 2015

Wednesday, December 16, during Afterschool, the World Architecture class went outside to draw the outside of our school building. There were so many details we had never noticed before! Then we wrapped boxes like presents and drew details to turn them into models of the buildings and houses we live in. Marcus turned his box into Manhattan Country School and made 96th Street “for it to live on.” Haydée made her house on one side of her box and MCS on the other. Chelsea made grass all around her house and a standing up tree. Kolette made a foundation that holds her building up. Jumaane made every single window of all 18 floors of his building. Through this activity, we realized: “A home is a gift!”
