For award-winning architecture and design team Peter and Sharon Exley, fun elevates the everyday. In fact, as founders of the Chicago-based firm Architecture Is Fun, this husband and wife have crafted their professional ambitions toward making meaningful, interactive places and spaces for families. One of their first clients was the internationally renowned Chicago Children’s Museum; other children’s museums, exhibits, and adult cultural spaces soon followed.

Students attending The South Miami K-8 Center Expressive Arts Magnet have a new space in which to learn and create thanks to a community outreach partnership by FIU Landscape Architecture, Studio Roberto Rovira, and Vectorworks software. Called the Easel-Bench Courtyard, the project transformed an outdoor space at the art, music, dance, and drama school with new furnishings, including four benches that function as easels and worktables for various mixed-media exercises, plein-air painting, and portrait drawing. The design doubles the classroom space and facilitates arts education that engages the outdoor environment.
