Landscapes of Life

Client: National Memorial Arboretum

This thought-provoking and immersive exhibition plays a vital part in repositioning the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) in Staffordshire as a world class visitor attraction. It forms the heart of the visitor experience, situated in the new, contemporary £15.7m Remembrance Centre, designed by Glenn Howell Architects, which opened October 2016.

Our vision was to bring out both individual and wider, universal stories around remembrance, rendering them accessible and engaging through a mixed-media treatment, within the exhibition space and at key locations within the vast grounds. Specially commissioned art works, graphics and AVs within the design scheme celebrate the tranquillity of the site's forest surroundings, while revealing the complex human stories of the groups or individuals, both military and civilian, who are commemorated here.
