Designing exhibitions – The right people at the right time

In SESSION 2: The importance of designing for technology during the early stages of a project

Designing exhibitions – The right people at the right time

Speaker: Dave Patten

Designing exhibitions is a lengthy and complex process and designing and delivering exceptional exhibitions involves many disciplines. It is essential to bring the right people and expertise to the project at the right time and that there is respect for each other’s expertise within the project team. Media rich exhibitions demand that as much focus is spent integrating the media and technical solutions as is given to choosing objects and writing text. Decisions around the technology employed can have far reaching consequences both for the successful outcome of a project and it’s operating life. In this session Dave Patten will share some of his experiences of developing exhibitions at the Science Museum.
