A Cathedral's History
Display materials were carefully selected to blend with the ancient environment and make a statement for the 21st century. Monuments set within the walls offered an opportunity to ‘embrace’ the space. A steel ribbon inscripted with the words “St. Patrick’s Breastplate” encircles the Cathedral interior with a suggestion of prayer.
The design is simple and contemporary. Shapes are pure and elemental. Graphic elements are kept to quiet neutrals with minimal colour accents. Strong ecclesiastical colours are used to define the exhibition clusters.

‘Thank you for this powerful, yet sensitive, interpretation of the life of St Patrick’s. Against the background of fifteen centuries of daily worship, it focuses on the most significant events and figures in the cathedrals history.
Our visitors find it very inspiring.’
Dean, St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin
