The Meramec Valley library in St.Louis has commissioned Toboggan to imagine and create two experiences for the new children’s discovery areas. The first interactive is a “story wall’” where children use Playbloks with words or illustrations on them, to complete or reimagine a nursery rhyme. The second experience is a construction area where Playbloks are used as playful bricks to build simple walls and structures.
Toboggan Design has been chosen to reimagine and design the new Canadian Children Museum planned to open in 2021. Laurent Carrier, one of Toboggan’s partners, was part of the original design team back in 1994 and is excited to take part of the renewal as he will get to revisit the visitor experience and exhibits following new goals.
The Canada Science and Technology Museum is the first national public institution in Canada to earn the Accessibility Certified Gold rating under the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility CertificationTM (RHFAC) program. Toboggan is proud to have collaborated with the museum in creating truly accessible exhibits.
