Habithèque Inc. is an interpretive planning and design studio based in Philadelphia, PA. For more than fifteen years, Habithèque has connected organizations, firms and individuals to create dynamic spaces for education, storytelling, and community engagement.
Our work is interdisciplinary at its core—we link technology, public art, narrative and science to craft immersive and enticing experiences for learning.
Our most recent work takes us to the banks of Philadelphia’s two rivers, the Delaware and the Schuylkill. We dove deep into the state of our watershed and created the tools key cultural institutions situated along the river need to build active and aware water stewards of all ages. Together with a diverse team of makers, thinkers, doers and performers, Habithèque has worked to increase public engagement with Philadelphia’s waterways by crafting inspiring experiences at the water’s edge.
Habithèque thrives on building accessible experiences that ground current conversations in historical and spatial context. See our latest work at the Mussel Hatchery Exhibition and Floating Workshop at the Fairmount Water Works, and at River Alive!–a multidisciplinary river education project created in partnership with the Independence Seaport Museum. Previous collaborators and sites include Ellis Island, Mississippi River State Park Visitor Center, the DuPont Environmental Education Center, the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine, PECO, and the African American Museum of Philadelphia.
