Attraction & Entertainment Solutions’ Michigan public library excites children with a themed mystical environment for experiential learning

Located in Southfield, Michigan, the Southfield Public Library enriches the life of the community by providing opportunities to connect, discover and learn knowledge in a uniquely engaging and enjoyable environment. Nowhere is this more apparent than the visually exciting themed spaces designed and created specifically for children. Whether in the interior of a vast spaceship, or in a mystical world of friendly dragons and enchanted forests, Southfield Public Library inspires children to enjoy exploring the wondrous world of the written word.
Known for creating richly textured and engaging themed environments for children, our creative team, led by John Oldham, was called upon to provide its imagination and experience to assist in the design and engineering of the various themed interior and exterior spaces. Our team fabricated the fiberglass sculptural elements key to the central concepts, as well as integrating interactive learning stations and specialty lighting to add more texture and atmosphere, making the environments more engaging and rewarding for children in their search for knowledge.
