The Project

One of our favorite projects at Collab was for The Children's Museum of Manhattan.  They asked us to develop an exhibit to teach kids about architecture by studying Mosques from around the world, and make it mobile so it could travel to Libraries and Schools.  Mobile, yet immersive was the directive.  And give kids a memorable experience while teaching them about the architecture of Mosques.

As we researched mosques from around the globe, the design, color and the unique materials used to build these mosques became a guiding principal.  We wanted to create an experience that would engage the kids and help them understand how complex shapes and structures played a role in the architecture in their everyday lives.
