If walls could talk, what would they say? From classical physics to new discoveries in environmental science, from deeply held cultural beliefs to spectacular feats of engineering, buildings reveal fascinating stories of human ingenuity and science. Interactive components explore the physics of architecture. An object theater examines a house as a system. Other components look at houses of the world, or allow visitors to build their own structures. Raise the Roof will draw the visitor into the extraordinary world of buildings as they have never experienced it before.
