Beacon of Learning and Play
Knock Knock Children’s Museum
Master planning, architectural and exhibit design for new children’s museum in Baton Rouge
Cambridge Seven Associates and Remson Haley Herpin Architects designed the new Knock Knock Children's Museum on a small hill overlooking Baton Rouge's City Park. Working simultaneously with the non-profit Knock Knock Foundation to design the exhibits, C7A created a new facility that integrates the building and its site with the child’s play experience. Four pavilions at the top of the hill are staggered to fit between and under the canopies of seven beautiful live oaks. These connected two-story pavilions allow for the building to thread between the trees and step gracefully down the hill, while acting as a beacon for the activity within. One tower signals the entry lobby, a second encloses the interactive Reading Tree, and the tower nearest City Park houses the climbing structure, seen from the street and offering ambitious climbers a view to the lake beyond.
