Join us at MODA and design architecture for good in Minecraft!

Join us at MODA for Minecraft, 3D printing and a museum tour all in one class. Tour MODA’s current exhibition, Design for Good: Architecture for Everyone with a MODA educator and see examples of real-life architecture projects in that show creative approaches to designing structures for the unique people who live and work in them. Then using the exhibition as inspiration, design your own architectural models in Minecraft. Learn about the design thinking process and use it with coding to make epic Minecraft models that we’ll 3D print for you after class. Participants will also learn about 3D printing and how to use Minecraft as a computer-aided design (CAD) tool. After the class, MODA will 3D print participants’ model which will be available for pick-up in two to three weeks.

Participating Young Designers Will:

  • Develop skills in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programs

  • Learn about and practice technical sketching
