Join Mithun partner Rich Franko, project manager Michael Fiegenschuh and project landscape architect Christian Runge for “The Louisiana Children’s Museum: An inside look at the process of bringing a new museum to life,” a guided tour to preview the Louisiana Children’s Museum new facility in City Park, scheduled to open in fall 2019. Learn how the new museum came to be, from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina through an integrated design process—from redefining its mission, to selecting a site, to selecting the design team, to the actual design and construction—a process that can help your facility become an embodiment of your mission. Get an inside look at the holistic approach that artfully weaves vision, sustainability—expressed through the building, site, exhibits and graphics—and play for an immersive visitor experience. Tour co-presenters include Louisiana Children’s Museum CEO Julia Bland and Gyroscope president Maerryta Medrano.
