New ‘Dream it, Draw it, Build it’ Exhibit Runs Through September 3

IRVINE, Calif. (August 30, 2018) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced its support of a new interactive summer exhibit at Pretend City Children’s Museum called “Dream it, Draw it, Build it.” Ware Malcomb provided pro-bono design services for the exhibit, which runs through September 3, 2018.

The “Dream it, Draw it, Build it” exhibit features three activity zones, each representing various aspects of the architectural design process. Zone 1 (Inspiration/Process/Methodology) is where children can bring their dreams to life with a dress-up corner and inspiration wall. In Zone 2 (Drawing/Planning/Thinking) kids experiment with drafting tools and explore brainstorming processes during the initial stages of design. Finally, in Zone 3 (Applying/Building/Materiality), three free play activities are available for kids to collaborate, experiment, and take the sketches they created in the previous zones and bring them to life.

“Ware Malcomb is proud to partner with Pretend City to inspire the future generation of architects with this unique exhibit,” said Jinger Tapia, Ware Malcomb Principal of Design. “It adds a new dimension of summer fun for these kids.”

“An interactive hands-on experience is vital for children,” said Sandra Bolton, Executive Director of Pretend City Children’s Museum. “The Dream it, Draw it, Build it exhibit encourages children to explore all aspects of architecture and design by visualizing a concept and making that concept a reality. We are very fortunate to have this exhibit design sponsored by Ware Malcomb.”

Ware Malcomb client Ganahl Lumber generously donated the lumber for the project.
