A Love Affair with Transport
Event’s first design action was to agree a clear conceptual framework. Transport is about movement, sound and activity. Displays are targeted primarily to family audiences and there is lots to do at the Riverside, inside and out.
The Key Attracts, high impact, sculptural compositions, are integrated directly in the building. A velodrome hangs suspended from the ceiling. A paternoster in continuous motion presents stars of Glasgow’s unrivalled ship model collection.
Interpretation of Glasgow’s hugely diverse collections is based on a Story Display concept. Important objects are interpreted in the context of a specific story, with related objects and media tied in. Event’s bespoke design system provides narrative and scalar flexibility.
The result is a powerfully intuitive environment in which objects, media and visitors feel equally at home.
Scope of works
2006 - 2011
‘It was tremendous pleasure to work with Event Communications on the display development and design of the Riverside Museum, Glasgow. Event provided very imaginative and cost effective display designs solutions and undoubtedly played a significant part in the museum winning the prestigious European Museum of the Year 2013 and the European Museum Academy Micheletti award 2012.’
