Louisiana Children’s Museum, New Orleans, LA — Mithun

Louisiana Children’s Museum, New Orleans, LA

Architect: Mithun

UW IDL’s Role: Daylighting Consultant

IDL supported Mithun as a daylighting consultant for the project. The experience of light was core to the project: “The Reggio Emilia child development philosophy—a child-centered approach that emphasizes multisensory nature play—guided the design of experiential and haptic elements that cast changing shadows and inspire interactive rainwater engagement while providing energy reductions and stormwater utility.” The COTE Top-10 jury noted that “The design does everything: being a modern vernacular form that is spatially rich and meets the triple bottom line of social well-being, environmental health, and a just economy.”
