In IED we are currently doing a group project based on exhibition design. We have to base our idea on the jute industary in dundee. As a group we have decided to look into the past, present and future of the landscape of dundee and how this has changed. trying not to make this like a history project!! We have decided to view and collect numbers of the mills in dundee and the chimneys that started to appear on the horizon over the years of the jute industary. I feel these are a really strong landmark of dundee, individual to it as a city. When standing at the top of the law, looking over the city this becomes apparent.
Reasearch into exhibition design has been proving really interesting and exciting!! There is a lot of scope to make it really individual and conceptual as well as having an educational aspect aswell. I feel that some form of abstract, conceptual map may be really interesting, something that the user can walk around, through and on top of. Also wanting to incooperate the present and future, with the viewer being the present is the current stage of investigation and development.

exhibition at dca at the minute. we are currently doing a project based on exhibition design. this gave me a real idea of how exhibitons do not have to be fancy, hi-tech designs but can still have a massive impact on the viewer. this simple design had a huge impact on me and really made me think about both the design and what it was trying to convey.

pretty cool interior designer that I visited a few months ago. just thought i would share the website as it gave me a real idea of what interior design involves and a few different ideas of projects. it was really good to actually get on site and see the process and behind the scenes of some cool clubs, bars and hotels in edinburgh. she is about to start a project in dundee in the next few months - something im planning on keeping up to date with.
