The new LEED Platinum certified Paul Smith Children’s Village at the Botanic Gardens in Cheyenne, Wyoming is an incredible example of educational design — it’s a hands-on, interactive place where learning about the environment is woven into every aspect of the garden. The community set off from the start to take a holistic approach to the project and succeeded in creating a beautiful space that combines art, water, building, energy, community, history, and learning about how things grow.
