Learn why the Woolworth Building was described as “The Cathedral of Commerce”! Though built as an office building, the Woolworth tower used the architectural vocabulary of medieval cathedrals. After an introduction to Gothic-style architecture and a quick tour of the exhibition “Woolworth Building @ 100”, kids will be able to compare and contrast style, ornament, and structural methods of Gothic architecture with the Woolworth Building. Ages 6-12.
All workshops are located at The Skyscraper Museum at 39 Battery Place. Registration is requested by Friday at 5 PM. To sign up for the Family Program newsletter, or for more information, email education[at]skyscraper[dot]org or call 212-945-6324.
*Cost is $5 per child; members free.
