In this session, we will examine how design can interweave plant collections and visitor experience to become an immersive journey revealing ecology, topography and plants as one system. This approach becomes less about presenting collections as isolated within individual exhibits; rather, it presents collections as deeply connected to the larger systems they are a part of. It will lead us to explore what “sense of place” could mean for your institution. We will reflect on design as a way of revealing natural and cultural history, responding to local geomorphology and climate, and providing artful yet precise interpretations that expose and narrate the richness of your collections.
Please note: There is no cost to attend this workshop, however pre-registration is required for space purposes.
