City of Chicago Ogden Park & Regional Playground

Nurturing a Sense of Community Pride
Ogden Park opened to the public in 1905, as an innovative site providing relief from tenement living that sparked the development of other social properties across the country. One hundred years later, the family-centric design reconnects the park to its changing community, encourages visitation and enriches the Olmsted Brothers and Burnham’s original social program.

Serving Teens, Children and a Growing Community
Symbolic throughout children’s literature, trees serve as the iconic elements in this children’s library, located just within the main library entry. The interactive Dragon Trees of the Fountaindale Public Library stand strong and proud, creating a forest of adventure and discovery where every visit is a story in which to take part.

Children’s Museum of Brownsville

Children’s Museum of Brownsville

Architecture Is Fun captured the spirit of Brownsville and created a space that works beautifully. The design and layout of the museum flow effortlessly, encouraging learning, all the while making it great fun. Sharon and Peter did not miss a single thing…the museum floor, reception, offices and facilities are all beautiful and relevant. Their work puts children in charge of their own experiences in safe, efficient, and appropriate spaces.
