The Louisiana Children’s Museum will host a preview of their new facility in City Park, currently scheduled to open in Fall 2019. This tour will be led by Julia Bland (Chief Executive Officer, LCM), Richard Franko (lead Design Architect, Mithun), Maeryta Medrano (lead Exhibit Designer, Gyroscope) and Debra Guenther (lead Landscape Architect, Mithun). Attendees will enjoy a holistic, guided tour which will describe how the new Museum came to be: beginning in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and continuing through the Integrated Design process that helped bring the new mission of LCM to life. The new building and site will be completed prior to the conference and the exhibits will be in the process of fabrication and installation – an exciting time for the project and an inside look at the holistic process which artfully weaves vision, sustainability, and play together for an immersive visitor experience.
Following the tour, attendees will enjoy snacks and refreshments prior to a presentation on the concept of Integrated Design and how the Louisiana Children's Museum used this process to maximize the expression of its mission and values through the architecture, landscape and exhibits.
Ticket price: $25.00
