Lee H. Skolnick Design + Architecture Partnership (New York) received the FIT Graduate Exhibition Design program's Star Award last month in New York. The Star Awards, given during the school's Capstone Event, recognize significant supporters of FIT and the Exhibition Design program. Since its inception, LHSA+DP has sponsored FIT interns, several of whom have gone on to join the firm.
Lee Skolnick recently gave the opening address at the Association of Children's Museums Annual Conference, "Interactivity," April 30-May 2 in Pittsburgh. His address was focused on reimagining the future of children's museums in our culture and the global community.
The firm also announced several new projects, including a master plan for future exhibition development at Miami Children’s Museum (where the firm designed inaugural exhibits 10 years ago); preliminary planning and programming for a new visitor center for Walkway on the Hudson, a restored former train bridge that has become a popular pedestrian bridge; and planning and design of a new children’s Discovery Room at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
