The Sensing Progress Center is the product of a collaborative design effort between interior design and architecture. Our mission was to design a future-oriented, healthcare-related node, maximum size 3000 square feet, in a Brooklyn neighborhood of our selection. “Sensing Progress” in Park Slope, Brooklyn is designed to be a multisensory journey for children where the vehicle is play and the destination is understanding. The neighborhood’s population of young couples and families, and its many highly reputed schools indicated the importance of children and education in this area, while research indicates that learning disabilities affecting reading, motor skills, memory, and sensory input are on the rise across the country. Therefore, Sensing Progress is intended to use breakthrough interactive technology and innovative multisensory experiences to give this community a center for children to develop their own interactive and sensory abilities to learn. The center focuses on the use of sensory integration therapy, a specialized branch of occupational therapy that employs carefully selected therapeutic sensory experiences and physical interaction to enhance sensory integration in order to improve learning, behavior, and quality of life. The result is an irresistible playscape that beckons children from many learning backgrounds to move, touch, look, listen, climb, explore, shape, and interact with their environment as it responds to them.
