The Complexity of Design

This city erected by Henry and several other classmates was a engineering feat as they encounterd some challenges presented by the very nature of the materials chosen.

"Divine Nature gave the fields, human art built the cities." ~Marcus Terentius Varro, De Re Rustica


  1. What a beautiful representations. I would like to know what kind of challenges Henry had in building this structure and what he and his classmates did to achieve this representation of the city. Well done!

  2. The city created by the children is so spectacular. It is amazing to see how they
    put it together!!

  3. The balancing skills presented by Henry and his classmates are very impressive! It is wonderful that the children have figured out where the center of balance is for the different loose materials. The design skills the children came up with to create this city is also beautiful and it is incredible how the children can create the city with simple loose materials.

  4. Such a great representaion of the city, I absolutely love this.~Sabrina
