The Children's Museum

I recently did a blog post on San Diego's new Central Library, which was designed by Rob Wellington Quigley. Quigley is one of San Diego's most renowned architects and has done a lot to shape the fabric of our built environment. I had the opportunity to shoot this museum a couple of years ago, so thought I'd put up some of those photos here.

Primary access to the museum is through this narrow bridge, which enhances the experience of discovery as you enter.

The catwalk continues through the inside to the front desk.

The building replaces an old warehouse that the museum previously occupied on this spot, and is certainly meant to evoke that space.

The interior is revealed as an open space, criss-crossed with a series of walkways and stairs.

The exhibits change every couple of years. The theme here was about trash and recycling.

Same spot as above, but outside and evening.
