Hall of Biodiversity

Honor Award
Hall of Biodiversity, American Museum of Natural History, Ralph Appelbaum Associates

The 11,000-square-foot Hall of Biodiversity at the American Museum of Natural History was created to celebrate life's great diversity and beauty. As well as focusing on living species, the exhibit also tells the story of mass global extinction, and how species are being lost at alarming rate through human activities. Located within a softly illuminated space are three main areas: The Spectrum of Life, the Rainforest and The Resource Center. The challenge was to explain an extensive story with different messages within a compressed space.

The Moveable Museum

Honor Award
The Moveable Museum, American Museum of Natural History, Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership

The Moveable Museum of the American Museum of Natural History brings interactive education to remote locations throughout the New York City area. Inside, children travel through the Gobi Desert and into a paleontologist's laboratory, all within the confines of a customized Winnebago. Every educational opportunity has been maximized through design. Exterior graphics include actual-size dinosaur renderings (allowing children to measure themselves against their favorite Jurassic creature). Simple interactives are combined with high-tech activities to engage varying ages and skill-levels.

Ducati Showroom Prototype

Merit Award
Ducati Showroom Prototype, Gensler

In pursuit of its goal to achieve a stronger worldwide awareness of the Ducati brand, the company decided to create a street-level presence in urban centers around the world. The principal objective of the showroom is to create a retail environment that displays the Ducati motorcycle to its best advantage, reinforces the distinctive Ducati brand and captures the dynamic essence of the motorcycle. The design concept, strongly industrial and minimalist in nature, is based on the perception of the motorcycle as an elegant, highly engineered machine.
