a little knoxville

I am currently working on miniature buildings for Safety City, a program the city has to teach kids about, you guessed it, safety. The center of all this is a 1/4 scale reproduction of Knoxville, complete with a mini-Sunsphere, that has little roads that kids get to drive go karts on to learn the rules of the road. Who knew we had something like this in K'town?


The whole time I've been designing mini-buildings, a scene has been playing in my head:

"What is this, a center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can't even fit inside the building? The center has to be at least... three times bigger than this!"

i always wanted to go to safety city. it sounds so... comforting. it delights me to know what it really is. i have a question though. can adults go and ride little go carts and learn about safety, too? i feel a little left out.
