architectural history for young children

many americans lack basic knowledge of the built environment and this severely hinders our society’s ability to build and maintain a healthy, efficient, and environmentally friendly world.  children are rarely taught about architecture in any shape or form.  i believe that art classes need to include architectural education; architecture should be equal to sculpture, photography, and painting in basic curricula.

i propose a photographic book chronicling important and outstanding architectural works, with emphasis on the modern, aimed at young children.  the intention of the book is to teach and expand a child’s world.  by exposing children to visually stunning buildings which they would otherwise never see, the book will provide inspirational and thought-provoking moments.

i plan to follow the book with educational workshops for both teachers and children.
