The Microsoft Museum presented Girvin with the opportunity to affect all facets of the design process, from the upfront strategy and content organization, through space planning and environmental design, to interactive and video development. The result is a cohesive and seamless environment that aids in understanding the Microsoft brand message. The space is organized into four zones, each detailing a different segment of Microsoft’s business, from consumer products to office software to learning tools to corporate history. The pixel, a core element of the brand graphic standards, served as the form generator for both the exhibit structures as well as the information graphics. All exhibits are designed to accommodate the ever-evolving Microsoft story through PC-generated graphics displayed on monitors and acrylic graphic panels suspended via aircraft cable.
