Portland Children's Museum Outdoor Adventure
Hennebery Eddy is working closely with landscape architect Mayer/Reed to design several structures for the new Outdoor Adventure at the Portland Children’s Museum. These include a garden shelter, tree-pods, and an observation deck for parents to oversee, but not disrupt, their children’s play.
The tree-pods create hidden nooks where children can play while providing ample space for others to meander from one tree-pod to the next. They feature wood-clad skins that wrap organically around bent willow branch frames—evoking childhood structures built from found materials. With cedar shakes placed intermittently around the curved forms, children can peek out and explore distinct natural elements: sky, meadow, and water.
