Construction on Santa Barbara's first ground-up museum is full STEAM ahead!
AB design studio is focused on the construction administration phase of MOXI.
Set to open in late 2016, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation, a.k.a. MOXI, is rapidly taking shape. Steel support beams and infrastructure were installed on the second floor and will provide the framework needed for the third floor deck. Once completed, this deck will be one of the largest and tallest top floor patios in the city.
The 19,000 square foot space is one of the most anticipated developments in Santa Barbara in the last decade and will be the county's first LEED certified museum. With exhibits focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math MOXI is committed to ensuring that children learn critical thinking skills that will help them succeed in the future. Each of the eight major exhibit zones, called Tracks, will feature a large, kid-powered contraption that will serve as the focal point.
AB design studio is very proud to be part of this unique and inspiring development. Stay tuned to our blog post for updates, progress reports and more interesting information about this amazing project.
