This exhibition celebrated the long and varied career of the late US Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Senator Moynihan was an outspoken advocate of public architecture and urban planning. The museum organized the show as a tribute to the "Senator of Design."
This is the most comprehensive exhibition ever presented on the ancient city of Petra, located in modern-day Jordan. It features approximately 200 artifacts, including architectural fragments and sculptures, ceramics, and decorative stuccowork. The challenge for this show was to evoke a powerful site without literally recreating it.
This design distilled the Reynolds image into a space as simple as possible. There was nothing in the exhibit except product and brand. The back wall showed a bicycle rider riding not on a bike, but on an array of Reynolds components flying in formation, key to drawing the distinction between a component manufacturer and a bike manufacturer.
This interactive exhibit uses a human-scale display system to allow visitors to explore the photographic work of artist Tatiana Parcero on multiple levels of their own choosing. By projecting through a large pane of half-silvered glass and embedding a diverse range of sensors into the psychical display, the designer created an innovative way for users to incorporate into and interact with the artist's work. The exhibit also includes a dynamic spatial interface that allows the user to explore a timeline of the artist's personal and professional history.
The goal of this project was to create an environment that reflects both outstanding athletic and academic achievement. A collage of images represent each athletic program at the university. Complementing these images are action shots of various student athletes participating in each individual sport and a video display. Moving into the study area, viewers are able to follow an abstract time line honoring past Academic All-Americans and their achievements.
The communication goal for this internal brand gathering was to engage and encourage managers and owners to think differently about their roles within the company as it moves away from a focus on real estate to a vision of the collection of Starwood lifestyle brands. The role of the environmental graphic designers was to immerse them in the brand-centric vision, excite, and surprise them with multi-sensory experiences as they mingled in a large lobby space.
This exhibit illustrates the importance of unique design development approach paradigms in achieving revolutionary results.
Smart Cars and other iconic objects were displayed as examples of successful paradigm shifts in practice. The architectural transformation of 340 Madison, a recently redeveloped and redefined Midtown Manhattan office building, is also integrated into the exhibit.
How does one use a structural form to display a singular idea and express it in multiple ways? Eureka! A simple, illuminating light bulb reminds us that each design starts with an idea. This exhibition celebrates the best designs of 2005; producing the event took the creativity of a team that understands inspiration.
The exhibit design refers to the Victorian context of Darwin's work, with dark wood and brass cases, while incorporating a contemporary perspective. It moves back and forth from an ordered rectilinear world with decorous Victorian detail, for the sections focusing on Darwin's life, to curving organic shapes in the areas where discovery and science prevail. The section on the Beagle voyage is organized into little islands of content, and the pathway through the exhibit is evocative of the circuitous voyage itself.
Eat and Be Eaten began as an exhibition when Liberty Science Center needed to keep its live animal collection while its main building was closed for expansion. It would be on display for two years in temporary space and then move back to the main building upon completion of the renovation. It was designed as a modular system of durable hexagonal structures that could easily be reconfigured and expanded.
