In the study, in the context of the project titled "Child and Architecture: I'm Learning My City", it was aimed to make children learn their city where they live in, perceive the architectural elements which shape the city and notice the environment which is generated by these elements On the other hand, looking and seeing competence of children were tested. The project was performed with pupils of 8/A class in Kaymakli Ata Secondary School in Trabzon-Turkey. Previously, instructors tried to make children know more better their environment with a range of informative activities that were seminars and excursions. Later on, children were supposed to design the city logo by benefitting from historical and cultural background of Trabzon and it was expected that children solve the problem in the direction of acquired knowledge which they learned. In the end, it was obvious that through this study the children realized symbol buildings constituting their environment that they live in and with the help of this short course they could use these buildings in their works by abstracting them.
