FAAB reimagines Warsaws largest public square as a solar-powered cycle park

In 2018, after celebrating the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence, Warsaw-based firm FAAB Architektura was inspired to look toward the future for a more permanent commemoration of Poland.

A spiraling stack of books that houses a bridge and a museum!

Twirling through the air and combining two riverbanks, The Twist is “a hybrid spanning several traditional categories: It’s a museum, it’s a bridge, it’s an inhabitable sculpture,” says Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner & Creative Director, BIG.

A Week in the Life of an Installer

How often do people get to say that they swapped jobs with a coworker?

I’m a Project Coordinator for Taylor Studios and for just one week became an Installer. Well, lucky for me, I recently had a chance to walk in the shoes of another coworker.

Giving your Visitors a Voice: The Talk-Back Experience

When designing an exhibit, there is one question that always arises no matter the content. Do you want to have a space for your visitors to contribute their voice? Talk-back experiences in museums are not a new concept. They are a great way to collect visitors’ thoughts, opinions, memories, etc. on a variety of topics. They are also a great way for the site to collect data on their audience. On a deeper level, they are a way for a museum/exhibit to include the visitor in the conversation, a ...

How to Prepare for Your Exhibit Install

Preparing for an installation can be stressful. Let’s face it; most people would prefer to do anything else. Whether it is your home or your organization, the endless items that you have to account for can make you feel overwhelmed. The reward, however, is worth all the fuss—especially when the reward is a brand-new exhibit. When it comes to installing an exhibit, the hope is that the space is ready to receive all the new items. If the space is not ready, this could possibly affect how t...
