PROJECT: The Museum of Perth exhibition space on Grand Lane serves as a meeting place of ideas and stories, a retail space, micro-cinema and a cultural hub in a forgotten part of our city.

To support the new Museum, we designed eight permanent exhibition panels that chronicle the social, cultural, political and architectural history of Perth. The bold use of colour reflects the urban location of the space and leads the eye around the room. Sections of the plywood substrate were left blank to foster a raw and authentic atmosphere, in keeping with the exhibition content.

COMPLETED: October 2015
