GSM Project creates immersive exhibitions for Canada Science and Technology Museum

Designers GSM Project have delivered three exhibition spaces for the new Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, allowing visitors to “discover innovations and technology through immersive experiences”.

The three galleries include 19 integrated interactive and media displays and a number of large-scale exhibits.

The first gallery, ‘Into the Great Outdoors’, showcases more than 100 years of technological developments geared toward conquering and roaming vast landscape – from bicycles to snowshoes, cars, skiffs and snowmobiles.

It features an interactive experience called 'Bike Fail', which invites visitors to race bikes from different eras, helping them to measure the technical advances that have occurred.

The second, ‘Sound by Design’, explores the different historical inventions for capturing and reproducing sound. To celebrate the power of silence, GSM Project designed a visitor chamber where there is virtually no perceptible sound.

In contrast, a sound and music spectacle in three dimensions, called 'Horizons', features four soundscapes orchestrated by the presence and movement of visitors.

The final exhibition, ‘Steam: A World in Motion’, pays homage to the golden age of steam in rail and maritime transport. The display is centred around four locomotives and a ship’s steam engine.

“We hope to make science and technological innovations of different eras come alive for our visitors and, through direct experience, to make the sometimes complex content clear even to novices,” said Nathanaël Meyer, director of creation at GSM Project.

The firm has designed exhibitions for major museums across the globe, including the National Museum of Singapore, the Canadian History Hall in Ottawa, the Anchorage Museum in Alaska and the Museum of Civilization in Quebec.
