What could be better than exploring Charlie’s chocolate factory or visiting Gepetto’s workshop? We think it was our trip to Scientific Art Studios (SAS) where the OFJCC’s Oasis Playground is being fabricated.
In January, the OFJCC senior management team visited SAS at their Richmond workshop to see the progress on our Oasis and we all became kids for a few hours!
SAS’s huge complex feels like a movie backlot with crafting sheds housing both current work as well as hulking replicas of projects for past clients like the Monterey Aquarium, San Francisco Zoo and AT&T Park.
We saw scale models of our intimate “tent of Abraham,” watched the tipping tunnels of our Rube Goldberg-y “water wall,” saw and touched their ongoing experiments in fabricating exciting—but safe—slides and other enticing play features. We watched SAS artisans and craftspeople at work, testing colors, materials and textures all with the goal of building us a visually and physically exciting children’s wonderland that adults will enjoy, too.
Coming to the OFJCC June 2016!
