An interactive project at the end of the book enables curious kids to put what they learned into action.

Including a fold-out timeline, engaging architect profiles, and interactive projects, this design resource will motivate young creatives to look at the world with fresh eyes and inspire a renewed observation of and imagination concerning the buildings and structures that will define the future.
