The Riley-Wallace Education Building, which sits at the heart of the Rock Springs 4-H Center in the Flint Hills of Kansas, needed more than a fresh coat of paint; it needed a complete reimagining. So the Kansas 4-H Foundation turned to Flint Hills Design to reinterpret the exhibit areas in the building, including a large diorama exploring the ecoregions of Kansas; three classrooms featuring interpretation focusing on trees, birds, and wildflowers; and a nook devoted to Kansas’ wild weather. Completed in 2018, these revitalized educational spaces were built to help the Rock Springs 4-H Center reach its educational goals, help the next generation of Kansans learn to know and love the natural treasures of their state.
Featuring illustrations commissioned from Kansas institution Brad Sneed, Flint Hills Design curated and designed the exhibits to meet Rock Springs 4-H Center’s educational goals.
As a full-service design/build firm, FHD provided design, curation, fabrication, and installation, providing savings and increasing impact for Rock Springs 4-H Center.
