Here at Yerba Buena Gardens, the popular Children’s Creativity Museum is currently in the center of a neighborhood under major construction. With workers, equipment and activity all around, it’s more important than ever to consider how design, engineering, and construction achieve the best outcomes when practiced with inspired creativity and diverse collaboration.
Deconstructing the change with art + tech
In recognition of the big changes underway at YBG, the Children’s Creativity Museum is currently featuring an exciting exhibition which uses art and technology to inspire conversations about the elements of strong communities including:
- Civic Function
- Public Spaces
- Creative Expression
Under the them of BuildSF, the centerpiece of the exhibition is Sketch Town. It’s an immersive digital experience, installed within the museum’s iconic cone. Visitors of all ages can create buildings and vehicles, which are scanned and projected on an interactive virtual city.
This exhibit was selected to complement other museum programs that also illustrate the creativity employed in architecture and construction. Children and families will be able to build structures of blocks and magnets, create claymation videos, and solve design challenges related to the construction theme. The exhibit was made available in partnership with teamLab and Hitachi America, Ltd.
