For children looking to learn more about the buildings that surround them, the Tinybop educational architecture app provides an inviting and gamified way to enter into the various iconic skyscrapers. The app focuses on providing a highly visual interface using cartoon-style graphics that allow players to experience the buildings from a first person perspective without having to physically visit them.

The app, fittingly entitled 'Skyscrapers' offers a digital exploration all things architecture. Children are able to construct their own city skylines and create the buildings by building the floors. Each floor has a different function and purpose with different colors marking whether the space is used for offices or residential. As children progress through the game, the features they can add in the buildings become more and more complex.
