It's no secret that most architects who are also parents want their children to follow in their footsteps. But how can we encourage our children to think like architects – critically, spatially and creatively? For parents in Manhattan, for the past five years Rockwell Group's Imagination Playground has provided an answer. The educational play system consists of large-scale blocks of varying sizes and uses, allowing children to build whatever they can imagine – without the long hours and deadlines. Now, with the release of Imagination Playground 3D Builder, the creative platform is now available digitally, for free.

With the app, children have the opportunity to engage their creativity anywhere, and little design divas won’t have to share their toys. For kids, Imagination Playground is both play and studio time, teaching problem-solving, spatial reasoning, creative thinking and more. Started by David Rockwell, the principal of the Rockwell Group, Imagination Playground has won many awards for its work and effect on children worldwide. Find out more about their app and try it for yourself here.
