Akron’s new museum seeks to gather the history, spirt and act of invention into a single facility, and it succeeds by harnessing design, entertainment, and education to the vehicle of exploration . . . . the transition between exhibits and architecture is all but seamless, assisted by the flexibility of the building’s Neo-Constructivist esthetic which allows [the architect] to express programmatic and structural layering through sculptural assembly.

Our focus is here is on ingenuity – on getting people to think inventively, understand how things work, and then, we hope do something with that…..the building is part of that process.
