Black to Green Interpretation

This is the end of a two year process of design and various stages of interpretation ideas. The brief originally came to us with the desire to create a series of hubs using cut through corten steel. However, we felt that this treatment was a little unsympathetic to the project aims so we created a completely new design. The hubs came from the notion of a pit wheel within which we introduced the stories of the landscape setting for each hub. Thus the story is in steel. The interpretation panel inserted into the hub puts flesh on the bones of these stories. The spinning zinc etched discs and coloured resin introduce a fun element allowing for the interpretation to appeal to a wide ranging audience including children.

Engaging Interpretation at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare

The latest interpretation at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare has built on the existing interpretation we installed last year and includes audio, visual, smell and touch interpretation. This all adds to the mix of engaging activities that the education team run at the centre to help visitors understand and feel fully engage with their work of helping animal welfare.

Rainbow Bridge at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare

 The concept

The Bridge is called so as it is based on the Norse Rainbow Bridge connecting Earth to the realm of the Gods - Asgard. That bridge as in ours did not have a start or end as it was a place of mythical journey. In order to enter the bridge you have to pass the sculpture "Liberty" - this is a very loose representation of the guardsman of the bridge Heimdall. Liberty allows the visitor to leave behind something of the ordinary world and begin a journey to a special and very personal place.
