- For the Fall 2012 semester; I worked with a team of three other designers in putting together an exhibit proposal for the Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust. The most important element in create the exhibit was developing a consistent theme; and employing that theme throughout the exhibit space.
Our big idea:
The power of the engine can be quantified in different ways. The power of design, the power of engineering, and the power of people.
We were asked to create a node that would live within the exhibit space. The exhibition node will exemplify our exhibit goal by showing the visitor the “true power of the engine”. We decided to separate each wall into its own theme.
One wall will representing how the engine works.
One wall representing the engine in action.
One wall representing the engines power.
The details of the node can be formatted in a number of ways. This is dependent on the content that is available to the Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust. It is also important to us that the viewer be able to walk around the engine and see all the details.
- In addition to our node; we recommend that Rolls-Royce adopts a visually striking “sky-ceiling”. We have seen the backlit canopy employed with great success and impact. As the viewer is making their way through the exhibit; planes will fly overhead on screen.
- Here is the completed floor plan:
