Children's Discovery 



San Jose, CA


This project adds a 3,400 square foot workshop for the design and construction of the museum's nationally award-winning exhibits. A half-acre experiential eco-educational garden surrounds the new shop, with water collection cisterns, photovoltaic roof, and other sustainable measures. The project is funded by the Children's Discovery Museum Foundation and is supported by the City of San Jose and the Guadalupe River Parkway Conservancy.
