🏡 Stefano Dorata, a Rome-based architect and designer, believes that architecture is the container of human emotion! As people now tend to stay at home more often, while staying at home might be mandatory, it doesn’t have to be boring with kids. Let’s learn more about the house we stay in and practice the visual-spatial thinking skill. We design myViewBoard Originals for Architecture to let students know what kind of element builds up a house and what is supporting the building.

👉 Help students “act out” different structural systems to develop knowledge of three-dimensional forms and learn a basic vocabulary of structural components.


  • Act out different structural types: column, arch, dome, tunnel, column beam, and flying buttress.
  • Complete the task to practice the understanding of the different structural systems.
