Design-build Done Right. The John W. Walstrum Center for Advanced Manufacturing Technology co-locates manufacturing-related programs and workforce development activities in a signature, state-of-the-art facility that serves as a magnet for students, teachers and industry partners. Located at the main entry to campus, the Walstrum Center is a gateway to the college and applied technology education—putting the college’s mission and programs on display.

A Summer to Remember: 2020 Mithun Interns

Student interns are an important part of the culture at Mithun. We asked this year’s cohort to share perspective into their inspirations, dream projects and summer experience.



When hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans 15 years ago this month, the site where the Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM) (@louisianakids) now sits was under several feet of water. Back then, the museum was housed in a brick building in the Warehouse District. “The idea to move was not because of a plan to expand. It was motivated by a need for the city and state to invest in children differently,” says LCM CEO Julia Bland, whose mission for the museum went beyond entertaining children for a few hours. ⁠ ⁠ LCM engaged Seattle-based architecture firm @mithun_design, which includes a landscape architecture practice, to negotiate the 8.4-acre site, located within the world’s largest grove of live oaks, in City Park. The museum’s new 54,600-square-foot home is spread out between two linked two-story structures that were carefully sited to protect the oaks while enhancing the nearby lagoon.⁠ A diatom-shaped bridge over the lagoon features a fog sculpture by artist Fujiko Nakaya. ⁠ Read the story from our August issue at the link in our bio.
