BUILD NYC is an installation of interactive building stations with playful materials and challenges that expose people of all ages to diverse works of architecture, design, engineering and construction. Elements include:
- custom-designed, pop-up infrastructure for building together;
- Lego, Imagination Playground blocks, MagnaTiles, and more;
- self-guided activities contributed by architects, engineers, educators;
- books on architecture and engineering;
- staff and volunteers to facilitate.
We’re looking for architecture, engineering, and construction firms to get involved. Become a Founding Sponsor of BUILD NYC and help us bring this experience to the streets of NYC. Share a prompt for building that will inspire New Yorkers to learn about the city’s built environment. Bring your employees out on the streets to help get New Yorkers building things together. Contact Leslie Davol. Thanks for your support!
Help us expand BUILD NYC in 2021!
BUILD NYC is traveling across New York City with a special focus on underserved neighborhoods where art and education resources can be scarce. Your donation can help us share these great materials in all neighborhoods of New York City.
