Interpretive planning and exhibit design
Museums, science centers and zoos
We work with mission-driven, non-profit organizations that aim to effect positive change. We have been working with these organizations for more than 35 years to create experiences that challenge visitors to think about their place in this world.
A global planning and design firm
Shortening the distance to understanding
We have worked on nearly every continent on the planet so we understand how important it is to be flexible and culturally appropriate. Ps. If you hear of any great projects in Antarctica, we'd love to tick that box...
Experiences inspire action
Change does not happen easily
If facts alone changed our behavior, nobody would smoke or overeat and we would all floss twice daily. Only when the effects of our behavior become personally relevant, do we really work to change it.
A culture of collaboration
The value of multiple perspectives
Successful projects require the collective wisdom and complementary skills of diverse teams. This can include architects, biologists, engineers, conservationists, artists, NGOs, community advocates, aboriginal peoples and even kids!
Celebrate what makes you unique
Skip the attendance roller coaster
Every institution faces "shoulder seasons" when attendance is lower. We apply a simple principle to make institutions attractive year-round; If you design for tourists, locals will hate it. If you design for locals, tourists will love it!
