Fun For The Entire Family At San Francisco's Annual Architecture And The City Festival
San Francisco’s eleventh annual Architecture and the City month is about to begin and, as always, it promises to be an amazing celebration of all things architectural. This year’s theme, Home: My San Francisco, will explore how architecture and design factor into a modern interpretation of home.
What I’m particularly lovin’ about this year’s celebration is that it includes the kids. Of course there are the events that we grown ups would enjoy - including films (and the lineup looks like fun), professional lectures, and all sorts of tours that take participants to just about every nook and cranny of the City; but it’s the programs for children that pique my interest.
As part of Architecture and the City month, the Contemporary Jewish Museum is offering a series of fun family activities throughout the month where kids (and their parents) can create models of Mid-Century Modern homes or build structures using straws and cardboard. And, if you’ve ever wanted to build a sandcastle, Leap – Arts In Education is offering Sandcastle Building 101 (just in time to learn the skills you need to participate in next month’s annual Sandcastle Contest).
Architecture and the City runs through the month of September, 2014. Visit Programs to find out more about the films, activities, and tours featured during San Francisco’s month-long Architecture and the City Festival.
