My son Kelton has a passion for drawing and at 8 years old it often ends up being pictures of mine craft and other video games. I really want him to expand his mind and the way he looks at things so he isn’t just drawing stick figures. He also love to build, with anything, sticks, legos what ever is on hand. When I read about The Future Architect’s Handbook, I knew I wanted to have him check it out
How Architect’s Work
I love that The Future Architect’s Handbook walks your child though what and how Architect’s work. It doesn’t seem mundane or boring but exciting and information packed. The break down of tasks is easy to understand and uses Aaron the Architect who is building and designing his own home as your guide though the steps.
Studying The Future Architect’s Handbook
As you flip though the pages you will learn how Aaron goes about making the choices for building his new home. I love that the Author Barbara Beck used a real life experience with an Architect she knows and their experience building his cottage. The drawings are detailed and Kelton loved seeing the different styles of homes. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with on his own. these pen-and-ink architectural drawings should inspire Kelton to use these lessons to his own designs. This book is the perfect introduction to architecture!
