Thumbnail of Building Traditions project

Join us and construct a small structure using the ancient building method of rammed earth construction - a style still in use throughout Latin America and the world. We will also examine beautiful contemporary architecture that is a rich addition to the already bright and beautiful landscape of Latin America. Finally, we will construct the traditional game El Juego Del Sapo (the game of the frog - Spain), Juego De La Rana (game of the toad - Peru, Uruguay, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Argentina), or simply Rana (Colombia). Once played by the royal court of the Inca; this game is a fun, skillful, and competitive way to pass the time with friends.
