Family Design Day Programs @ BSA SPACE encourage children and adults to observe, explore and design together. In these two hour, hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design of Boston and the world through exhibit tours, neighborhood walking tours or slide shows, and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and Designers lead these programs.
