City Museum Takes Repurposing to an Art
A worthy playhouse for architects and designers, City Museum consists largely of repurposed architectural and industrial objects, housed in a former International Shoe building in downtown St. Louis.
City Museum, St. Louis, is a human playhouse combination of repurposed materials in an adaptive reuse of a downtown shoe factory.
City Museum is a playhouse museum, consisting largely of repurposed architectural and industrial objects, housed in the former International Shoe building in the Washington Avenue Loft District of St. Louis. Although originally opened to the public in 1997, the museum is "always building," as its website says, ever changing and incorporating new objects for appreciation and play. According to the museum's website, starting Monday, March 13, 2017, City Museum is open seven days a week.
The destination played host to the closing events of this year's United States Institute of Theatre Technology (USITT) entertainment and design event in St. Louis, March 8-11, where Church Designer staff was on hand to learn about new technologies applicable to church and worship space design.
The play and wonder continue outdoors at City Museum in St. Louis.
