While we anchored the exhibition narrative and physical design, we also focused on how the digital interactions would support the experience. My contributions to the project were largely through the architecture and exhibition lenses with my partner Chloe, and the three Industrial Design students led this portion of the project. However, the whole team worked in tandem to maintain a clear vision and direction for the entire museum experience.
For the user interface playbook, a large, inviting color palette maintains a playful feel while providing enough distinct hues to differentiate projections on the city model and stargazing room. The fonts are clearly legible and contrast well, making them suitable for the various interfaces.
An optional app enhances the museum experience by allowing users to skip the kiosk ticketing and printing process, save and share creations, and stay updated on the exhibitions. Screen interactions were designed for each interactive museum exhibit including the city model projection interaction, mental mapping exercise, and constellation collection & creation.
