Acoustic Design for Interiors at the Lighthouse- exhibition set up and preview

These images show some of the enjoyable hard work that went into the installation of our exhibition. I would like to gratefully thank the staff at the Lighthouse exhibitions for their fantastic support, our sponsors, and all Friends and visitors who helped make the exhibition a great success.

Exhibition layout Dwg.

In the beginning - unpacking the four large boxes containing total 108 singular Tessellate plywood and foam panels.
We tested the panels a few weeks beforehand to ensure a smooth installation with no surprises on the uneven back panels and curved wall.  I worked with exhibitions assistant Ben who did a fantastic job installing the whole exhibition.
Split battens for hanging- 2 x per panel running the whole length of the wall.
First 2 rows up - and the simple hanging system makes it quick and easy.
Applying the laser cut card panel cut outs to the top levels- it was high and the scissor lift was a wee bit wobbly! You can just see the plan layout for the panels to the left.
Up and down in the scissor lift.
View from floor above looking down on graphics being installed.
Last of the wall graphics being applied and getting the projection correctly positioned.

Only 3 hours to go till opening. Ben drilling the stand for the projector but we're almost there.
6pm Thursday 21st February 2104 and all ready!

Smiling but also concentrated faces and hand gestures at the preview show people were engaged and delighted by the feature wall and video works. Thanks to everyone for coming along!

Me with Allan Madden, Head of Exhibitions at the Lighthouse.
