Chicago Children’s Museum: Stinking Truth About Garbage

The Stinking Truth About Garbage greets children and visitors with an educational and engaging exploration into environmental issues. Located in a prominent location, the exhibition is a colorful, simulated landfill. Via stimulating imagery and interactive elements, this environment teaches visitors about problems associated with disposal of solid waste, and introduces practical solutions that can be studied within the exhibit and practiced at home.

Expressing Identity
My Museum is designed to create hands-on opportunities for personal and intrapersonal expression and exploration. The body-scaled, three-dimensional entry letters entice visitors into a previously underutilized exhibit hall. Spelling out “My Museum” in very varied ways using tactile and diverse materials, these letters represent playful and creative ways to communicate.

A Cityscape of Play
A fanciful metropolis, Playmaze encourages a child’s imagination in a context-rich and integrated environment. This 1,500 sf city is designed specifically for children under six years of age. Scale, proportion, color, and form create a “mini-city” that is safe while encouraging independence, physical manipulation, and investigation; all of which are essential to a child’s development.
