Legos and Learning at Center for Architecture Sarasota

Story Project Spotlight


At Center for Architecture, October is Architecture and Design Month – a month-long celebration of our built environment designed to educate and inspire our community about the importance of thoughtful planning and building. There are a number of unique and stimulating October programs planned, beginning with internationally-renowned architect Toshiko Mori’s exhibit “Dialogue in Details” and a kick-off event tonight, October 1, 5:30 to 7:30 at the Center with live jazz, light bites and a sneak preview of the exhibit. 

And this Saturday, October 3rd, 9:30 to 11 am is a special program for children ages 5-13:  Kids at the Center – Architecture 101, based on Bricks4Kidz Lego Build. This program triggers children’s lively imaginations and builds their self-confidence. It provides an extraordinary atmosphere for students to build unique creations, play games, and learn basic architectural concepts. This play helps children develop the intellectual, emotional, social and creative skills that are of lifelong benefit to them and their communities. The students attending program will also enjoy a mini-figure swap and treats to take home. Admission is free, but registration is required and attendance is limited. For more information and registration, please visit  The Center is located in the McCulloch Pavilion at 265 S. Orange Ave.
