He is 11 and loves architecture. He is constantly making blue-prints, borrowing architect books from the library, and building houses from his blue-prints. I do not know much about this subject but I know that there has to be someone out there who does and would be able to give me a suggestion on how I can help him to learn more. Is there any computer software I can buy for him? What type of material do architects need/use? I will take any and all suggestions because he really likes doing this and he is really good.

That's awesome! You might check into summer youth programs at any colleges in your area. If you don't have any colleges near you or the ones in your area don't offer youth programs you still might make some contact with the Architecture department and see if anyone there can give you some ideas. You might also find out about opportunities through a professional journal such as Architectural Digest. You might even call a local architectural firm and see if anyone there has any ideas for you. Also, keep doing what you are doing! You can never go wrong encouraging your child's natural talents and interests.
