Fresh ideas about design
How do you measure and set standards for things as intangible as light, or as strong as structural steel for skyscrapers? This is the charge of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the products and services of which are used in the design of the smart power grid, satellites, lasers, atomic clocks, bulletproof vests, homes, factories, spacecraft, and cyber-security systems. NIST commissioned our firm to design exhibits for NIST’s facilities in Gaithersburg, MD, and Boulder, CO. The intricate exhibit structure will integrate glass panels, glass beams, metal posts, and lighting. Historic tools, machinery, test apparatus, videos, interviews, and photos will highlight the extraordinary contributions NIST has made over the past 110 years to the development of the U.S. as the world leader in science, technology, and engineering.
Collectively, the design and construction industry has risen to the challenge and we’re diligently doing our part in reducing the amount of waste generated, however statistics don’t lie… We still have a long way to go!
