Detailed exhibit interpretation briefs to inform the design of a selection of exhibits and galleries within the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Center in Kuwait City, opened in Spring 2018, becoming one of the largest museum complexes in the world. Working for the design team at Cultural Innovations, briefs were delivered encompassing content as diverse as Arabian wildlife, biodiversity, tropical ecosystems, extreme ecosystems, prehistoric life, our place in nature, our dynamic earth, transport and the history of flight, providing a review of existing content, adding detailed content and visitor outcomes for exhibits, providing direction for image selection and model poses for the graphic and interpretation design. During the latter stages of fabrication, visits to multiple contractors were also undertaken with Design PM to ensure the standards of quality and detail met the brief.

Having previously worked with the team on the live animal and plant specifications for a large living ecosystem gallery, when employed by WWT Consulting, it was great to continue this working relationship and assist in the continuing development of this exciting project.
