DAVIE, FL.- Glavovic Studio and AECOM have designed a new building for The Young At Art | Museum Broward County Library in Davie, Florida. Conceived as infrastructure and landscape, the LEED Gold Certified building is the first museum and the first children’s museum to achieve LEED Gold Certification ranking in Florida and is one of only three children’s museums to be LEED Gold certified in the United States. The building has recently won the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Southeast Florida/Caribbean 2013 Vision Awards Project of the Year.

The program for the 55,000 square-foot building creates an extraordinary holistic experience through innovative use of space, materials and resources. The child and the child’s experience of this particular place in South Florida have inspired the design concept. The design incorporates the relationship of space to the child and the interaction of the child in the production of ideas and the ongoing interaction of art with the user.

The museum, which offers a singular and enriching arts-based learning experience, has four major exhibit areas, an art institute including art studios for 2D visual arts, ceramics, 3D graphics and photography. In addition there is a library, a teen center, café, conference areas and a reading room.

Key green features include a reflective, white TPO butterfly roof, exposed structural, mechanical, and infrastructural systems throughout the interior, maximized natural light roof, adequate solar orientation and high performance glass, built-in methods of efficient energy use and rainwater collection through an above ground cistern.
