ARoS Public

Finalist 2017
ARoS Public

ARoS Public is a radical rethinking of the museum experience as a modern community center. At the heart is the belief that art is not a diversion or weekend entertainment, but rather that it has a crucial job to do and is most valuable when interaction sparks new forms of social exchange.

Math and Science Meet Recess

It’s no secret that tests and textbooks might not be the best way to teach a class of energetic students. Educators are on the hunt for a better way, including the team at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI). Funded by a grant from the

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Local Projects partnered with NYSCI to get science and math out of the classroom and empower students to take learning into their own hands.

Target Open House

What will the connected home of the future look like?

The Internet of Things market is expected to grow to $1.7 trillion by 2020. To seize this enormous opportunity, Target asked Local Projects to design a store demonstrating how smart devices will change the world. The result was Target Open House, an unprecedented retail space in downtown San Francisco more focused on educating and engaging than selling.
