GSC Explore! Gallery
Client: Glasgow Science Centre
Scope: Refurbishment of interactive exhibits and furniture for Explore! Gallery
Glasgow Science Centres brief was for Unusual Projects to refurbish a strong existing suite of classic exhibits to bring back to full functionality and to tie in with the aesthetic of the new exhibition.
Explore! Celebrates the wonder and beauty of science around us using exemplar phenomena-based exhibits to develop the scientist in all visitors. The Explore! Gallery interactives encourages the development of natural curiosity through the sense to observe, to categorise, to look for relationships and to find reasons.
We worked closely with the in house team to evaluate the existing working and physical condition of the exhibits and then removed them to our workshop in York, each interactive was repaired and fully refurbished and finally the furniture and graphics were refreshed to tie in with the new design aesthetic across the wider gallery.
The exhibits included Energy Machine, Tennis Ball Launcher, Human Battery and Cycloid Collision.
Glasgow Science Centre has worked with Unusual Projects on 3 projects within the past year. On each project they have delivered to an exceptionally high standard and have exceeded expectations with regards to communication and their ability to advise on technical solutions and problem solve. The renovation of the Explore! exhibits was a challenging project as the existing suite of exhibits had been very well used for around 20 years! The design process was seamless, working in collaboration with the team at GSC, and incorporating all requests as the process developed. Any changes required went through a strict control process, meaning that there were no surprises at the end of the project. The end result and overall aesthetic of the refurbished exhibits has made them look brand new and fit in perfectly with the new suite of Explore! exhibits. Another fantastic experience of working with Unusual Projects!
