National Science Foundation, New York Hall of Science


Project Vision

An on-the-street exhibit that reveals how cities work, the Science City exhibit for New York Hall of Science and the National Science Foundation is a truly interactive piece. Visitors see the depth of water mains below through periscopes, look at the antennae through telescopes and read about infrastructure on interpretive signs. The idea is slated to be adopted by science museums throughout the United States.
