TRAVELING EXHIBITIONS


Touring exhibitions and environments are complex in design and present build challenges. They have the aesthetic requirements of a permanent space combined with the mandates of total demountability to efficiently travel across all locations of a tour’s program. We perform cost benefit analyses of all concepts at multiple points through design development, so that all aspects of constructability are considered to achieve labor optimization, material durability choice, code compliance, material testing, custom packaging as well as spatial optimization for freight cost minimization are achieved at the initial stages
