Emu Exhibit Design
TYPE OF WORK:
This exhibit will uncover the facts about the Emus, the second largest bird by height, after its ratite relative, the ostrich. The layout of the exhibit was inspired from stories of the indigenous people of Australian mainland. The exhibit is designed to take visitors through scientific background, Emus relationship to the people, and its deeply-rooted history with Australia.
The layout of this exhibit was inspired about the indigenous tribe’s folktale of the ‘Emu In The Sky’.
