Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Water and Electricity commissioned Pico to deliver several objectives for two galleries at the Ministry headquarters: a Water Gallery and an Electricity Gallery.
The 300 sq. m. Water Gallery required our team to build a 3D mini theatre, design and produce several interactive exhibits – including an interactive milestone slider, infrastructure computer and an interactive ‘Water in Islam’ exhibit, as well as a number of 3D animated videos; provide 3D equipment and perform interior fit out and other infrastructure work.
For the 150 sq. m. Electricity Gallery, we produced the gallery’s entire stock of 3D animated videos, designed and produced interactive exhibits on AC power usage, heat transfer across glass windows and a comparison of light bulbs. We produced a ‘Power Me’ game and special exhibits on sliding glass doors and the correct use of building materials. Our teams also supplied all AV hardware, the design and production of all graphics and a number of other fit out and electrical tasks.
The galleries opened on 1 January 2015, and will be on permanent display at the Ministry building.
