AIA Philadelphia: Constructing Play

With over 50 toys on display from the past 175 years, “Constructing Play” explores the history of play and the pedagogical foundation that underlies the creation of building toys. Visitors to this exhibition will learn about their favorite toys, from Tinker Toys to LEGO, Erector Sets to K’Nex. They will also learn how structures stay up, discover famous local buildings in miniature, and see how toy designers took inspiration from the past to create today’s most popular building toys. Visitors can also show off their building skills in our popular Hands-On carts… ”Build it small, build it tall, build it all!” Be sure to check out our hands-on family workshop activities, scheduled throughout the run of the exhibition.
