Louisville Children’s Museum


Project Description

The Louisville’s Children’s Museum is a dynamic experience of color, light, and activity. It directly engages the site by wrapping the city’s sidewalk around its exterior as a vertical playground. The building’s cylindrical form presents a continuous façade that changes color as you move around its perimeter. Inside, the visitors experience the gradual color transformation of the structural partitions as they move along the ramp encasing five stories of gallery spaces. This extends to the roof garden 100 feet above street level presenting commanding views of the city.

Location: Louisville, KY.
Size: 300,000 square feet.
