The Crazy Crooked House

Architectural Workshop for Children (in German)

In this workshop, children aged 6 and older explore Daniel Libeskind’s museum architecture and build their own model of a crazy crooked house.

Why does the Jewish Museum Berlin have slanted walls? Why does it contain a stairway leading to nowhere? Why do the walls have slits instead of windows? How is this building different from all the other buildings in our everyday lives?

With the help of a ruler and a triangle, you will measures distances and spaces, chart the route a ball takes across the floor, and learn how light, stairways, and angles influence a building and its occupants.

Afterward you will do creative architectural work yourself, designing and building your own crazy crooked house from cardboard, modeling clay, fabric, and other arts-and-crafts materials.
