Students will study the diverse architecture of the Liberty Hall Museum campus to see how function dictates form in the design of our buildings. Using floorplans for several of the Liberty Hall buildings, students will learn how the house was adapted to meet the changing needs of residents over the course of 240 years. Building materials will be identified and analyzed for appropriate use and students will create a measuring tool to be used as part of a design challenge. Working in small groups students will work collaboratively to design a new addition to Liberty Hall.
