Here's the buzz on PLAY WORK BUILD ....
"Parents and children may want to consider putting down the video games and picking up the building blocks. A new exhibit on playing with blocks has opened in Washington, D.C."— USA TODAY
"PLAY WORK BUILD is both an extension and an elaboration on one of the museum’s primary missions, to introduce children to the building process. The second-floor gallery is now overrun by thousands of pieces of blue foam, some sized for building models and some sized to build forts."—The Washington Post On Parenting
"Collaborative activity, physical movement, and no resemblance to a typical playground are the three major themes of this endeavor." — Curbed DC
"The National Building Museum already hosts programs for teens interested in pursuing design as a career, but an upcoming exhibition intends to inspire a younger generation of architects, builders, and engineers." — Residential Architect
