Presented by Hector LaSala
For teachers of grades 3–12
“Box City” is an urban planning activity that was started by architects and educators to help students develop an understanding of the built environment. Drawing inspiration from the Hilliard University Art Museum’s exhibition, Paper Houses, by Robert C. Tannen, this workshop will explore the processes that have shaped our built environment and the lessons to be discovered about what a community is and how it works. Participants will create their own box city and discover ideas for the classroom, such as exploring local history and culture, the natural environment, social and civic engagement, as well as geometry and mapping skills.
