LIVING COMPUTERS: MUSEUM + LABS
Designed to encourage interest in computer programming, the youth-oriented
first floor of LCM+L includes interactive exhibits , a lounge that converts to events
space, and a gift shop and cafe.
The modular wall and furniture system custom designed for the space provides for
reshuffling of wall units between permanent columns, swap-abilty of inserted cases,
interactive kits and graphics, and ready storage of mobile furniture and equipment.
Made of parts 3D printed on site, sculptures placed throughout the space make
playful reference to exhibit topics and the lore of computer evolution.
