In a playful ceremony complete with kids on toy construction vehicles, the Strong Museum broke ground on its next evolution: a museum expansion that will be the centerpiece of the Neighborhood of Play, an urban development that’s a walkable, green place to live, work…and play.

In collaboration with CJS Architects, Mikyoung Kim Design is developing a neighborhood strategic plan and design for this exciting project that buries a 60 year old highway infrastructure system below grade to create more public realm spaces for the residents in Rochester.
