Students in the Department of Interior Architecture (Digital Technology and Fabrication) have created and installed “Larger Than Life,” a permanent exhibit at the Greensboro Children’s Museum.

Developed under the guidance of Jonathon Anderson, the project offers visitors to the museum an interactive experience as children play and navigate the larger-than-life landscape, which allows them to move through sky-high blades of musical grass and mounds of stepped terrain.

An exaggerated view of our natural world, the exhibit contains tactile, visual and auditory elements and allows children to interact with technology and experience processes and products of digital fabrication.

The overall purpose of the project is to educate children and families visiting the museum about the emerging possibilities of using technology to make, build and create. Technology-driven processes are becoming more evident in the daily lives of today’s youth, ultimately impacting their academic environments and their future professions.
