From the Comfort of Home:
Ways to Experience Architecture
in Michigan and Around the World
While Staying In


We believe that architecture enriches lives, and MAF is committed to connecting people with architecture in creative ways, even remotely. Our website has a number links to resources and activities (see below) to stimulate imaginations of all ages during stay-at-home orders and beyond. Many other organizations also are providing ways to virtually experience global architecture and landmarks.

Here are a few of MAF’s suggested sites to nurture your curiosity, senses, and wanderlust, all from the comfort and safety of home.

From the Michigan Architectural Foundation Website:

  • Looking for fun and educational physical activities for children? Why not engage with them in the architecture-based lessons of MAF’s ‘Architecture: it’s Elementary’ program? The FREE lessons, for children in grades K-5, are available on the Resources for Kids page of the MAF website. There, you’ll also find our ArchiTreks videos, which take kids on adventures that get them excited about architecture, science, and engineering. ArchiTreks can be done with family during a neighborhood walk, or even around the house.
  • Learn about historic Michigan architecture that MAF’s Evans-Graham Preservation Awards helped support over the past two decades
  • Want to learn more about some of Michigan’s must-see architecture, and even make plans for a future Michigan architecture tour?
  • Follow MAF on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube for news, activities, and updates on all things Michigan architecture.
