The architectural heritage of the Bronx is impressive with major projects by well-known designers, among them Stanford White, James Renwick, Jr., Heins and La Farge, Richard Morris Hunt, John Russell Pope, Marcel Breuer, Richard Meier, Paul Rudolph, Philip Johnson, and Rafael Viñoly. The architecture workshops focus on the built environment of the Bronx. Using the gallery's Bronx Architecture website (www.lehman.edu/architecture) as a starting point, students consider architectural design and history. They develop models and create their own designs of their schools and neighborhoods. These workshops help students learn to appreciate the architectural beauty in their environment, and draw on math and science skills, as well as aesthetics.
