Turn a New York Skyscraper Green!

Let’s bring nature into the city! Today, it’s more important than ever for architects to think about how to make their buildings green. Climate change means that cities need buildings that are healthier and more environmentally friendly. Kids will learn about the characteristics that help a building conserve energy and how architects bring plants and green spaces into their designs. Then, drawing inspiration from global green towers, young architects will redesign some New York skyscrapers incorporating these ideas!
