Exhibition design is a multi-disciplinary process that requires teams of designers to address spatial, physical, and environmental graphic issues pertaining to a range of exhibition spaces. This studio course exposes students to a range of theoretical and practical issues surrounding the design of exhibition spaces. The course introduces projects such as designing an exhibition for a science museum or designing a trade-show booth. Students work with both speculative design briefs as well as real-world client briefs and develop everything from the user experience scripts to the floor plans, fixtures, physical models, and environmental graphics. This course is designed to be interdisciplinary and to include graphic design and interior architecture students.
