This Museum In Singapore Is Encouraging Kids To Climb On Their New Art Installation

This comfy net installation in the National Museum of Singapore allows visitors to interact with the gallery in a new and playful way.

Designed by the French creative firm Atelier YokYok, Soft Dome is a site-specific work that invites both adults and children to explore the main dome area of the museum.

The piece was commissioned for Children's Season Singapore 2017, an annual festival that attracts kids and their families during the summer holiday.

Its shape was built to mimic that of the dome above, only inverted. The design was specifically chosen as a way to encourage kids to interact with the architecture of the museum in a new way. Whether used for climbing or relaxation, Soft Dome makes a visit to the museum a whole lot more interactive for kids who might not normally enjoy walking around a building full of things that can't be touched.

The net measures 2,152 square feet in total, rising 22 feet into the air and stretching 36 feet across. It took five days to install the massive piece.
