Mini Architects 20 Projects Inspired by the Great Architects

Joséphine Seblon, Robert Sae-Heng

Mini Architects harnesses the enduring fascination young children have with building to introduce them to architecture and structures from around the world.

Featuring twenty creative and easy-to-achieve art projects inspired by famous buildings and architectural wonders, this book is designed to help
parents, guardians, and teachers to be creative with kids.

Designed to engage young children with architecture through creative art projects, Mini Architects takes inspiration from some of the most famous architectural wonders of the past and present, including the ancient Pyramids of Giza, Stonehenge, and Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse.

Mini architects can choose from a variety of easy-to-make projects using simple materials and featuring a range of interesting techniques, ideal for teaching new motor skills. Step-by-step photographs and clear instructions are easy to follow for both children and adults, and each project requires minimal setup and cleanup, to ensure the maximum amount of time is spent creating together.

Each project is accompanied by photographic reproductions of the famous buildings that inspired them, along with fun facts and questions about the structures and their architects, designed to familiarize young children with this creative world and encourage discussion.
