Publishing House Redesign

Boston, Massachusetts

Designer: Luci Creative

Ravenswood Studio led the fabrication and installation for the Publishing House Redesign project How Do You See the World? at the Christian Science Plaza in Boston. Organized around an iconic Boston experience, the Mapparium, Ravenswood Studio leveraged the capabilities of our skilled craftspeople to complete exhibits in multiple galleries throughout this well-known historic landmark.

The exhibit design used architecturally-informed materials such as bronze, glass, Corian, and Mahogany combined with  detailed integration of AV equipment to create exhibits which complemented the historic interior. This required significant coordination with multiple vendors for AV equipment, specialty glass, integrated lighting, faux finishing, and metal cladding while also utilizing all of our internal fabrication and finishing capabilities.

Artisans at Ravenswood Studio pushed the capabilities of Corian by creating a two-tone world map used as a projection surface, and created a heat-formed curved desk in the space. Creating a seamless transition between new and existing elements, Ravenswood Studio fabricated oversized bronze kiosks and interactive tables to match the original materials and details in the building. Glass is used in a variety of ways throughout the attraction. Incorporated into the glass are backlit graphics, edge-lighting, and custom etching. Glass is also used in a more traditional manner with frosted accents and as a primary graphic surface throughout.

Ravenswood closely managed the coordination with the architect, general contractor, acoustician and lighting designer to ensure a holistic, fully integrated project.
