The Heinz Architectural Center’s collection is comprised of more than 5,000 drawings, models, photographs, rare books, games, and other material made between the 1780s and the present. The collection encompasses the full range of architectural representation, from roughly sketched concepts to carefully detailed models, and from the handmade to the digitally rendered. This exhibition presents a small selection of objects chosen to enlighten and inspire participants in Architecture Explorations, a program of camps and workshops for kids ages six through high school that takes place each summer in the Center’s galleries. Architecture Explorations is a collaboration of Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture.
The programs of the Heinz Architectural Center are made possible by the generosity of the Drue Heinz Trust. General support for the museum’s exhibition program is provided by The Heinz Endowments, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and Allegheny Regional Asset District.
