We’re carrying #EarthDay50 energy into the weekend and beyond. As inspiration, we offer a couple shots from the Sustainability Treehouse, an icon of environmental stewardship and AIA COTE Top Ten Project. At each step, it captures the wonder of childhood adventure and challenges visitors to apply meaningful stewardship ideals in their own lives. Together, we can make a big positive impact.

Happy 50th Earth Day! We celebrate today recognizing we cannot join together in our parks and streets, but with a renewed understanding that each of us are linked as citizens in a global community, responsible for the health, life and prosperity of each other. Bert Gregory FAIA looks back at Earth Day’s history, Northwest roots and continued influence on the sustainable design movement: https://mithun.com/2020/04/22/earth-day-turns-50/ (clickable link in bio).

The visitor experience at Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM) is designed to connect people with nature from their arrival—moving through groves of live oaks, across water, onto the large ‘lagoon porch,’ through the building and into a courtyard and sensory gardens. Along the way, the periodic mist of Fujiko Nakaya’s cloud sculpture envelopes people on the lagoon bridge, instantly and viscerally creating a magical and inviting space for children, and an immersive water experience. Explore LCM design details that connect children with place and activate imagination: https://mithun.com/2020/04/21/louisiana-childrens-museum-takes-learning-outside/ Photos: @k7scott
