Valerie Casey, founder and chief executive officer, Necessary Projects, San Francisco, California“Our Global Kitchen” blends traditional mechanisms in exhibition design with new thinking around storytelling. The traveling module manages to tell a compelling and often complex story about food without overburdening the exhibit with technology or overwhelming visitors with a monotonous landscape of information. The team effectively used rich visuals metaphors and mixed media objects to create a truly engaging and interesting education around food. “Our Global Kitchen” is a strong, creative and strategic solution that focuses on appealing to the individual visitor while building against the constraint of creating an 8,800-square-foot exhibition that will travel for five to ten years.
Jessica Hische, letterer and procrastiworker, Title Case, San Francisco, CaliforniaThis exhibition is beautiful. It looks as if every nook and cranny has been cared for and is ready to be explored. I could imagine spending hours and hours discovering and uncovering information!
Brad Johnson, VP, executive creative director, Second Story (now part of SapientNitro), Portland, OregonWhat I loved about this exhibition design was that it was as diverse as the culinary content it presented. There appeared to be a lot of great rhythm to the narrative spaces; as you progress from one subject to the next, the storytelling tone and texture shifts from didactic to playful, from interpretive to immersive and from informational to participatory.
Josh Rubin, founder and editor in chief, Cool Hunting, New York, New YorkMaking a large volume of content both digestible and immersive is a challenge the team at the American Museum of Natural History tackled with seeming ease and clear success. The installation was clearly engaging for a wide variety of museum goers.
