Posts Tagged ‘The Crystal’

Part of the work we’re doing involves Siemens’ Crystal – based in the Royal Victoria Dock – and this week we took a group of teachers to see inside. The Crystal is currently being fitted out with all its exhibits ready to open in the autumn so when we got down there we had to don hard hats, high viz jackets, boots, protective eye-wear and gloves before we could go on site. Attractive!

Inside the exhibits are still being installed and the partitions erected so we could see how the layout was going to work and two of the designers were on hand to explain each of the sections and what would be in there when completed.

Nicki Della-Porter from dbda is developing the national school resources and took some great photos, in quite a tricky environment:

The next stage of the plan is to meet with the teachers then liaise with the designers so we can get a clear understanding of each of the exhibits and what kinds of information they are imparting. Then this summer’s task is to produce some great educational materials ready for the launch.
