The GIANT Dream Land
Grand opening: November 3rd
In November, we build together a GIANT Dream Land, an interactive exhibit that transports you to a cozy place! The GIANT Room invites children and their families to design hygge inspired artifacts, smart textiles and wearables, whimsical characters and stories, and interactive art pieces using responsive technology and fabrication tools. We will provide equipment and materials such as a laser cutter, 3D printer, solar panels, electronics, programmable LEDs, building materials, and inspiration to build upon.
Starting with a blank canvas, GIANT families will transform the hub into an interactive cozy space for all to enjoy.
Address: 548 West 28th Street New York, NY, 10001
Recommended for: Families with children 3 to 12 years old
