Bridgewater Studio partnered with Chicago Children's Museum and Metropolitan Family Services to execute the fabrication and installation of a diverse set of playful learning opportunities in the everyday public spaces where families work, play and live.
In the Little Village neighborhood, we produced themed furniture, interactive elements, and engaging graphics, and installed a mural created by a local artist—all to promote early math learning in a neighborhood laundromat.

The development of this experience included the prototyping of various concrete-forming methods for tables and stepping stones, building custom benches and birdhouses, and installing durable outdoor signage.
With these creative applications, our cities and public spaces are reimagined as playful learning opportunities for children and caregivers.
As always, we owned the entire process to ensure optimal results:
