TELUS World of Science – Edmonton
In late 2019, Blue Rhino Design was selected by TELUS World of Science – Edmonton (TWOSE) to develop, design and implement an Arctic Gallery in a newly built expansion to the existing TWOSE building. This 9,000 square-foot gallery reflects Edmonton’s role as gateway to the North particularly as a centre for Arctic research. In this space, guests explore Arctic science and the Indigenous relationship with the Arctic through highly interactive and immersive exhibits.
In order to ensure the appropriate inclusion of Indigenous stories, objects, and images, the TWOSE project team included an Indigenous advisor and we took part in in-depth consultations with her and representatives of various Indigenous communities.
The Arctic Gallery opened in September 2022. Photos courtesy of TELUS World of Science – Edmonton.
