An architectural game for youth (family special) - theme #13

Dernière mise à jour : 26 juin 2020

Theme of the month: art and architecture

This is an opportunity to get together as a family to discuss the theme of "Art and Architecture". This week, the Museum is offering you a virtual visit to the youth exhibition Je suis chantier [Still Under Construction] presented at the MAJ in 2019.

What do you think "Architecture" means?

- Architecture is the art of constructing, designing and positioning buildings.

- Architects must know design, geometry, mathematics, and much more to build solid buildings that meet safety requirements, but are also beautiful and now energy-efficient.

Energy-Efficient: An energy-efficient house tries to limit its energy consumption or avoid losses on the energy produced inside it. 💡

Let's take a look at the Je suis chantier exhibition

- To do so, I invite you to consult the following link: 👀

It's your turn to play! 😃

- Why not use blocks to build your own building!

- Have fun with shapes, colours, and textures.

- Experiment with horizontal and vertical lines.

- Then imagine the characters that live inside:

- Who are they?

- Where do they come from?

- What is their everyday life like?

👉 Don't forget to send us your work at

This activity was prepared by Ariane Cardinal, Curator of Education at the Musée d'art de Joliette. 💜
