Image result for impossible buildsJoin us for a special Family Build Day at The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design.  Learn about careers in architecture, engineering, construction, design and experience a variety of  fun hands-on building stations. Explore the architectural elements of The Branch such as arches, towers, stairs and room shapes and  build a new room using unusual materials.  Create your own design plan for a new structure and  build a 3D model to take home.  Think like an Engineer and explore bridge building techniques. How much weight will your bridge hold? Architecture involves more than just buildings. Learn more as you explore the gardens of The Branch with a landscape architect and create your own garden design.
