The Architecture of Trees

Why are trees talented architects? Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a guided walk in Battery Park City, we will observe and draw the trees around us to understand how they are like skyscrapers! We will learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations.
