Scouts BSA Architecture Merit Badge

The Architecture Merit Badge class with the Darwin Martin House and Explore Buffalo will explore basic architectural principles as viewed through the lens of Frank Lloyd Wright design. Scouts will take a tour of the Martin House, speak to an architect, view models and architectural plans and understand the basic tools of an architect. With Explore Buffalo, scouts will tour a contrasting example of architecture, talk about reuse and restoration, and measure a room while learning the basics of scaling.
