EXHIBITION SPACE AREA
Develop an interactive Museum design | Updating the permanent exhibition halls
A new museum that highlights the updated contents of one of the most relevant and award-winning science museums in Europe.
The “Sala de l’Univers” is a remodeling of the permanent hall of CosmoCaixa, the “La Caixa” banking foundation science museum. This is a journey through more than 150 interactive experiences. Mediapro Exhibitions, together with Isern Serra, have designed a space where the Universe is represented from two concepts: a black background with white dots and light/color declined in 3 tones that identify the three sections of the room. In terms of museum space design, the discourse unfolds in all the scopes of science: the Big Bang and the expansion of the Universe, Newtonian physics and quantum physics, the origin of the life on the planet, DNA, the evolution of the species until reaching the very frontiers of modern science to observe the complexity of the human brain, or how biomimicry allows us to create new materials from the study of other animals. The project invested heavily in graphic, signposting and content remodeling and adaptation. Undeniably, this is a very complex project, given the scope of content to cover, but also due to the specificity of each of the interactive modules comprising the hall. The project was developed by more than two hundred people from every specialist area involved.
