Northwest Territories Pavilion, Expo ‘86

The development of the storyline for the NWT Pavilion was a consultative process involving a number of community groups. The resulting collage of messages (featuring people to the land) was told simply and effectively with photos, objects, and quotes arranged in the space with a flexible exhibit system (which was designed to be used by a museum in the north following Expo ‘86, as a legacy of the Exposition). Natural materials were showcased with large hides and northern clothing. Visitors viewing the A/V presentation were perched on ‘real’ rocks (much to the surprise of a great many visitors).
