Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute foyer for Monash BDI
The Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) is tackling the big questions in biomedical research by bringing scientists together into cross-disciplinary discovery.
Our team's methods mimicked this multi-disciplinary approach when it came to designing the space. The collective goal was to use the space and embedded interactive elements to better present BDI as a modern home of cutting edge science. While Sibling Architecture designed the physical space, the team from MADA (Monash Art Design & Architecture) worked symbiotically to design the permanent foyer exhibition, integrating digital and interactive outcomes.
The foyer exhibition consists of multiple interactive platforms.
Throughout the foyer are Oculi; touch surfaces embedded into the custom fabricated cellular walls and podiums. The Oculi house interactive activities and news items educating visitors on the histories and discoveries of the Institute.
The timeline uses Xbox Kinect sensors to track users' movement across the length of the 6m projected timeline. Users interact with content simply by moving in front of the wall, walking through the history of the Institute.
