In conjunction with Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward, the Sackler Center for Arts Education presents Learning By Doing,
an exhibition featuring a selection of models, drawings, and
photographs of shelters designed, built, and lived in over the past
seven decades by students of Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of
Architecture in Arizona and Wisconsin. The process of designing and
building a shelter, either by modifying an existing structure or by
creating an entirely new one, presents an opportunity for students to

As an extension of this exhibition, the Guggenheim and Google SketchUp launched Design It: Shelter Competition, inviting amateur and professional designers to model their own 3-D virtual shelters, located anywhere in the world. Visit the competition website.
