Education: Houses & Homes

This program allows students to explore the world of architecture and gain an understanding of the types of building materials used by architects and builders around the world. Exploring the buildings on Liberty Hall’s property, students will learn how different building materials were used throughout time, how climate, building function, and culture affect architecture, and how homes can come in many different shapes and sizes around the world. Students will spend time in our design lab and create their own two-and-three dimensional structures from a wide variety of materials.

In this introduction to architecture, students will explore the buildings on
the Liberty Hall’s property to see first-hand how different building materials were used throughout the previous three centuries. They will also learn how climate, building function and
culture affect architecture all around the world. Students will gain an understanding and appreciation of the types of structures that have been called home. Included in the program are a series of
hands-on activities that allow students to create structures in two-and-three dimensional formats.
