This project involved designing a small, pop-up exhibition that highlights the greatest milestones in the development of the microscope and the telescope.
Since this project involved seeing the world through two different lenses, our team developed a concept where entering the exhibition from opposites sides showed the stories of either the microscope or telescope.
The design was inspired by the apertures and circular shapes within the microscope and telescope. The textural elements were images of objects seen with each specific instrument.
The ceiling panels that connect the central column to the radiating columns would be constructed of frosted plexiglass, in order to give the impression of looking through a lens.
