The power of boxes

Over the years I have developed an obsession with boxes and fitting kit in the boxes. I suspect this is something that will be baffling at first sight to anyone who hasn't been on the road with a show or exhibition... and utterly recognisable to pretty much everyone who has.

Sales pitch: 
Something I have been thinking a lot is how to make the science centre sustainable, and more organic. One of my conclusions is that we should modularise as many of our exhibits as possible. The idea would be for the centre to have a set of tables which fit with the decor which have holes in them which take exhibits which are attached to sizes of board forming modules.

Subsiduary exhibits

Sales pitch: 
One thing I have noticed about a lot of science centres is that they often feel quite empty, this is partly because if a centre is full you can't put your exhibits very close together or it feels crowded, and probably actually gets quite dangerous. So I thought what you actually need is lots of subsiduary exhibits.
