Global Architecture:
Picturesque Pagodas

In the spirit of Chinese New Year, kids will learn about Poy Gum Lee, the architect who influenced Chinatown, and build their own pagodas.
Sat, Jan 21, 2023

In honor of Chinese Lunar New Year, join us to talk about Poy Gum Lee, a Chinese-American architect who designed buildings in both China and New York’s Chinatown. We’ll learn about “Chinese Art Deco”, the style he popularized in the 1950s, and where we can see his influence in Chinatown today! Then, kids will build and decorate their own pagoda towers inspired by traditional Chinese architecture. Recommended for ages 7-12.
