Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
Children aged eight to fourteen will be pressing forward on Capitol Hill on April 21st, 2012. Young children in the DC metro area are invited to take part in a walking tour of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in the latest interactive architecture program in the children’s series, “Hands on Architecture.” The program is one of many public offerings by the District Architecture Center (DAC) and the Washington Architectural Foundation.
Led by architect Mary Kay Lanzillotta, FAIA, children will meet at the Hill Center and enjoy a walking tour of the many significant architectural works in the Capitol Hill area, and then they will return to enjoy an opportunity to make their own architectural masterpieces. The program takes place from 9:30am to 12:00pm on Saturday April 21st, 2012 and registration is open now at http://bit.ly/xE5TMF. The event is expected to reach capacity quickly, as all programs in the “Hands on Architecture” series have in 2012.
“No architectural series of programs in our area would be complete without a focus on the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Whether for kids or adults, there is just so much to see and learn,” says Mary Fitch, Executive Director of AIA|DC. “We think it will be a nice opportunity for children to learn more about what has shaped the area and understand architecture beyond just one building at a time.”
The “Hands on Architecture” series is hosted once a month by the Washington Architectural Foundation and the District Architecture Center, located at 421 7th St. NW, Washington, DC 20004.
