Numbers in Nature exposes and explains the natural world’s familiar patterns: from the delicate nested seeds of a sunflower to the spirals in galaxies. Evocative media displays, interactive installations, and an 1,800 sq.ft. mirror maze immerse the visitor inside the patterns found in nature, music, art, architecture, and even their own bodies.
With the Museum of Science and Industry, we developed, designed, and implemented this fully-immersive permanent exhibit. The design was inspired by the simple forms of nature – creating an exhibit that feels natural and reflective of the earth’s mathematic patterned story and connections.
This exhibit received the Best Museum Environment Silver Award by Event Design Magazine and won an IES Illumination Award of Merit in the Guth Award for Interior Lighting category.
