IWM, London Holocaust Gallery
Scope: Scope: Tactile Model Design, Build & Install
We are proud to be part of Beck’s team who designed, built and installed a wide variety of tactile model replicas for this prestigious project.
Imperial War Museums, London has become the first museum in the world to physically and intellectually present the Holocaust narrative within the context of the Second World War. Spanning two floors and occupying over 3000m2, the new galleries tell the story of the Second World War and the Holocaust for a 21st century audience, engaging future generations of museum visitors with this complex and formative period of human history.
We feel very privileged to have contributed to this prestigious project designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates (WWII Gallery) and Casson Mann Ltd (Holocaust Gallery). We worked with Scena Productions, BECK Interiors and AY-PE to design, develop, build and install a wide variety of physical interactives and replicas.
Our work includes a replica therapy doll made by a former concentration camp prisoner, replica coins issued as currency in the Lodz ghetto, replica badges worn by supporters/members of the Volksgemeinschaft in Nazi Germany and a Replica glass bottle from the Haberfeld distillery in Poland and tactile label.
The museum receives an extremely high volume of visitors each year so the tactile exhibits needed to be robust, durable and easy to clean.
