The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center explains how and why the largest foundation in the world was founded, and describes its ongoing work around the globe. Perhaps even more importantly, the center is designed to involve and inspire visitors to make a positive difference in their own communities. The 11,000 square foot space features over 1,000 graphics, almost all of which were printed direct-to-substrate onto locally sourced timber. Stop in if you’re in the neighborhood, the center is free and open to the public. http://www.gatesfoundation.org/Who-We-Are/General-Information/Visitor-Center
