TCL acted as principal consultants of a diverse team of scientists, engineers and multimedia consultants in the development of a large living exhibit within the new Melbourne Museum.
Located within a large enclosed courtyard, open to the natural elements; living plants and animals, as well as sculpture and sophisticated technology are integrated to interpret the tall Mountain Ash forest east of Melbourne.
A feature of this project was the degree of integration of Museum staff and the consultant team. Close collaboration was an essential element in synthesising the vast knowledge of the Museum specialists, and transforming the many ideas and issues into a cohesive, inspiring and comprehendible interpretive environment.
"This design is visionary, conceptually rigorous and a spectacular technical achievement on a very constrained site." — Jury citation.
