Model Monday: Cardboard Construction

These miniature corrugated cardboard models of iconic SOM buildings were created for Bring Your Child to Work Day at SOM’s San Francisco office. Kids constructed and took home models of the Alcoa Building, Crown Zellerbach Headquarters, Lever House, U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, Willis Tower, and One Front Street (where the office is located). Each model was laser-cut and etched as a set of two-dimensional pieces that could be assembled together without glue. Other activities included coloring, puzzle building, a magic show, and face painting, as well as learning about the process of designing buildings. The SOM Women’s Initiative sponsored the event and looks forward to continuing the program in the years to come.
