On October 6th, the Design Museum Boston will be debuting its traveling exhibition, “Extraordinary Placescapes,” in Portland, Oregon. The exhibit features the importance of place and how designers translate play objectives into innovative outdoor play environments. Included in the 40 case studies of exceptional spaces is Halvorson Design’s Appalachian Mountain Club Highland Center in Crawford Notch, NH. The Highland Center is a model of sustainable design on 26 acres and includes a learning playscape adjacent to the Lodge. If your travels find you in Portland this fall/winter season, stop by the Design Museum and experience this one-of-a-kind interactive exhibit.
