THE EXPLORATORIUM

 

Project:

The Healthy Eating Exploratorium, Kew Gardens

Client:

Your Future London

Service:

Interactive set design for a one-day workshop at Kew Gardens

Brief:

Enable the Your Future client to explore ideas about healthy eating through an immersive one-day workshop.

Process:

Collaborate with client to understand the subject of their workshop. Design concept and manage production of interactive elements to facilitate the workshop activities during the day. Set up and take down installation on the day.

Result:

In the first room a Family Kitchen environment was created where the workshop group could gather together for conversation, refreshments breaks and end-of-day presentations.

In the second room a Library Lab space was created where the attendees could gather to work in their breakout groups. Each team was given a large table, a small library of books, images and ingredients, and a huge enlarged version of the sketchbook portfolio they had been working in during their field trip the day before.

The enlarged portfolios could be used for brainstorming during the day and for their group presentations at the end of the workshop.

Attendees were impressed by the theming of the spaces in the small cottage on the edge of Kew Gardens. The atmosphere created by our designs greatly enhanced their immersion into the workshop content.
