Build your foundation in architectural design with Architectural Engineering kit from Thames & Kosmos. Through model building exercises you play the role of architect and engineer as you piece together an array of models, from small, basic structural elements like trusses, arches, and domes, to giant complex models of real-world buildings. Try building the Sydney Opera House, or put the Eiffel Tower on display in your living room! With 20 guided model builds, you can construct stadiums, skyscrapers, a ferris wheel, and more.
By getting hands-on with these exercises, you'll develop an understanding of how architectural engineers apply scientific principles to their designs and how the buildings and structures of the 21st century push materials and engineering to the limits. The 44-page, full-color manual guides your journey while encouraging independent exploration. What is the tallest tower, the most voluminous dome, or the longest bridge you can build with the modular building pieces? How will you use what you learn to further your architectural journey? Recommended for ages 8 years and older.
